Gilman Scholars have proposed and carried out a wide range of Follow-on Service Projects. As long as the applicant’s proposal will meet the goals of the Follow-on Service Project, there is no right or wrong projects. However, we encourage all applicants to propose a unique Follow-on Service Project that highlights their individual background, experiences, talents and skills. Listed below are some examples of projects Gilman Scholars have carried out. This is by no means an exhaustive list and we look forward to continuing to receive unique, individual proposals from all applicants. Remember, all projects must promote international education and the Gilman Scholarship.
“I live in the Marina area in San Francisco. They built the Golden Gate Bridge in three and a half years in the 1930s, ‘33 to ‘36. They’re now building an access road to the bridge that’s taken eight years and possibly will end up costing more in inflation adjusted dollars than the whole bridge cost in the ‘30s. So it’s one of the reasons I personally don’t want to pay more taxes, because I feel the government spends the money so extraordinarily badly. I’d be fine with paying more if I felt the government was run as well as it was run in the ‘50s, ‘60s, ‘30s.”
Oh cry me a river…..she continues to publicly shame the father of her child and has the nerve to talk about the lack of justice for mothers…..men have been getting kicked over by the system forever and will continue to be treated as second class citizens. Thank you judge for recognizing that men play just as big of a role as a parent than the mother. The baby is obviously in the better household. You’re in debt, you’re ethics are questionable, you’ve proven not to be a fit parent with your first born and now you’re looking like an opportunist with this interview (who your daughter will one day get to read). Chris is married (better household stability), doesn’t have financial problems and has proven he’s capable of being a good parent evident from his first born. The only reason he even took you to court is because you didn’t accept his generous offer of child support and instead dragged him to court to request an unreasonable amount. Greed.
