Lila Sattler '23

Lila Sattler '23, a sociology major who is minoring in political science and gender and sexuality studies, is studying in the Netherlands as a Gilman Scholar.

The U.S. Department of State’s Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program enables American students to gain proficiency in diverse languages and cultures, skills that are critically important to their academic and career development.

"I'm studying gender, society, and culture in the context of Amsterdam and the Netherlands as a whole," says Sattler. "I'm thrilled to further my knowledge into these fields and I'm excited to get to compare how gender and sexuality are understood and expressed in the United States and the Netherlands."

Currently in Amsterdam, Sattler hopes to visit other cities including The Hague, as well as other parts of Europe including Belgium and Italy.

Bryn Mawr's fellowships advisers offer guidance on all stages of the application process, such as writing personal statements, requesting letters of recommendation, completing online forms, and preparing for interviews. Learn more here.
