Description

Are you interested in less commonly taught languages such as Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Russian, Japanese…? Michael Saffle from the Institute of International Education will be speaking with interested students about the Boren Scholarships and Fellowships that fund language study.

Boren Awards provide a unique funding opportunity for U.S. students to study world regions critical to U.S. interests (including Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East). The countries of Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are excluded.

The Boren Scholarship provides opportunities for undergraduate students to study in countries that are generally underrepresented in study abroad.  Boren Scholars are awarded up to $20,000 for an academic year.

The Boren Fellowship allows graduate students to add an important international and language component to their graduate studies.  Boren Fellows can be awarded up to $30,000. Additional information on preferred geographic regions, languages, fields of study and application procedures can be found at borenawards.org.
