Anna Burbach  

LINCOLN, Neb. — Anna Burbach of Hartington is among 22 University of Nebraska-Lincoln students who earned Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarships.

The Gilman Scholarship enables a study abroad experience, and Burbach, a junior biochemistry major, chose to study in Costa Rica during the summer 2019 term.

The Gilman scholarship is a nationally competitive award given three times a year by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. This round of scholarships was awarded to about 1,200 students from 354 universities and colleges.

Gilman scholars receive up to $5,000 to apply toward their study abroad or internship program costs. The program’s goal is to allow students to gain a better understanding of other cultures, countries, languages and economies — making them better prepared to assume leadership roles within government and the private sector.
