Boren Awards Info Session


Join us for a Boren Awards Information Session with Kyle Cox from the Institute of International Education. The Boren Awards offer up to $25,000 for undergraduates and up to $30,000 for graduates to conduct long-term study and/or research abroad in a critical region and to learn a less commonly taught language.

Language | Boren Scholars and Fellows study a wide range of critical languages, including Arabic, Chinese, Portuguese, and Swahili. Boren Awards are available to students of all proficiency levels who are committed to enhancing their skills.

Culture | Boren Scholars and Fellows from diverse fields of study immerse themselves in the cultures in world regions underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Service | Boren Awards alumni are committed to public service, working in positions critical to U.S. national security throughout the Federal Government, including the Departments of State, Defense, and Homeland Security, and USAID.
