Three more City College of New York students earned Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarships for the spring 2016 semester, bringing to 10 the number of CCNY recipients this year.

Hannah McIntyre, Saffia Rahimtoola and Katiuska Roumenov are the latest CCNY Gilman Scholars. The Scholarship is awarded to high achieving undergraduates who receive Federal Pell Grant funding and wish to study or intern abroad.

McIntyre, an international relations junior, will study Arabic at the University of Amman, Jordan.

Rahimtoola, a design junior, will study liberal arts and studio arts in Florence, Italy.

Roumenov, a senior majoring in arts with two minors, business and Italian languages and literatures, will study Italian in Siena.

Two CCNY students, Khristian Brooks and Brianna Madrigal, are currently in Asia on Gilman fall awards. A third awardee, computer engineering junior Steven Polanco, opted not to take the scholarship.

The Gilman Scholarship Program is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State, and administered by the Institute of International Education.
