Boren Scholarship for Undergraduate Students (Academic Year/ Fall/ Spring)

Boren Scholarships, an initiative of the National Security Education Program, provide unique funding opportunities for U.S. undergraduate students to study less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. interests, and underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East. The countries of Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are excluded. 
 
Boren Scholarships promote long-term linguistic and cultural immersion, and therefore, study abroad proposals for two or more semester are strongly encouraged. Preference will be given to undergraduate applicants proposing at least 6 months overseas. 
 
Boren Scholars represent a vital pool of highly motivated individuals who wish to work in the federal national security arena. In exchange for funding, Boren Scholars commit to working in the federal government for at least one year after graduation. 

More information on application, deadlines and requirements can be found here.
