The Boren Scholarship provides funding to U.S. undergraduate students to study abroad in areas of the world that are critical to U.S. interests and underrepresented in study abroad. Boren Scholars represent many academic fields but all are interested in studying less commonly taught languages. Successful candidates will be able to relate their career goals, as well as country and language choice to U.S. national security broadly defined. Applicants must demonstrate interest in government service, also broadly defined. The award is for a period of one semester or one academic year and includes $8,000 for a summer program (special initiative for STEM students only; eight weeks minimum), $10,000 for a semester and $20,000 for a full academic year.
