(Oct. 4, 2005)--UTSA sophomore Steven Faulk recently was awarded the Gilman International Scholarship and the Freeman-Asia Award to help fund his participation in a study abroad program at Nagoya University of Foreign Studies in Japan. Faulk's one-year stay in Japan began last month.

Faulk is the only UTSA student to receive both awards in recent years. UTSA students who meet the requirements and want to study abroad can apply for either of the scholarships.

The Gilman International Scholarship is a $2,000 award for students who will participate in a study abroad program for at least four weeks during the fall or spring semester. The scholarship was established by the International Academic Opportunity Act of 2000 and is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

The Freeman-Asia Award is a $7,000 scholarship for students participating in a study abroad program in East and Southeast Asia. Applicants must participate in a minimum of 8 weeks for a summer term or 12 weeks during a spring or fall semester. The award, which promotes American undergraduate study in Asia, is funded through the Freeman Foundation and is administered through the Institute of International Education.
