Description:

The Boren Scholarship funds undergraduate students who pursue language-intensive study abroad in countries out of the mainstream.  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.
