Come and learn more about opportunities for fully funded overseas study, research, and language training through the Boren Awards Program:

A Boren program representative will be presenting at this session and taking your questions about the Boren Awards programs and the application process.

The Boren Awards seek students who are U.S. citizens interested in topics related to national and international security, peace, and development, and who are interested in studying a language and a region outside western Europe – including Arabic, Chinese, Turkish, Russian, Korean, and many many more.  (Funding is also available for French in Africa or Portuguese in Africa or Latin America.)  The Boren Awards are open to both undergraduate and graduate students in ALL fields of study.

For undergraduate students, Boren Scholarships pay for study abroad that includes language training.  For graduate students, Boren Fellowships fund overseas research, study, and professional development that includes language training.

Alumni of this program serve for one year in the U.S. Federal Government, making it a great stepping stone for students interested in government and policy-related careers.

The deadline to apply for Boren Awards is in January / February, 2014.  Students applying this year as well as those thinking of the future are welcome to attend this session.
