Boren Awards Information Session

This is an Archive of a Past Event

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.

This award is the undergraduate portion of the Boren Awards for International Study, (which includes a Boren Graduate Fellowship). It was established by the National Security Education Act of 1991, in honor of Senator David L. Boren of Oklahoma. Boren Scholarships are funded through the National Security Education Program (NSEP), which focuses on geographic areas, and fields of study deemed critical to U.S. national security.

The Boren Undergraduate Scholarships offered through NSEP are designed to help prepare American students to enter professional life with more than a traditional knowledge of a foreign language and culture; acquire cross-cultural understanding and a global outlook; and enhance career and leadership opportunities in all fields-business, government, education, science and technology.
