Description:

The Boren awards seek to help graduate and undergraduate students advance their proficiency in selected strategic languages through study abroad (undergrads) and langauge study & research (graduate students). At its core, Boren is a language program, thus competitive applicants will be serious students of a language not commonly taught in the United States. In addition, Boren funding comes from the US Government, thus they prize government service. All applicants must be thoughtful about how their career contributes to national security. Finally, Boren rewards long-duration study abroad. Most recipients will stay abroad for six months or more.    

** The Boren Scholarship (undergrads) has an internal deadline of Jan. 22, 2020 at 12:00 noon CST. Contact Stephen Hill in the Office of Fellowships for more information about the internal process. The Boren Fellowship (grad students) deadline is Jan. 29, 2020 @ 5:00 EST. Boren Fellowship applicants are encouraged to contact Stephen Hill for application guidance.
