BOREN SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION SESSION
Where: OGC 113
Date: Wednesday, November 1st
Time: 3:30 – 4:30
Hosted by: URGO and Study Abroad/Study Away
Come join URGO and Study Abroad/Study Away to learn about this spectacular opportunity for students to not only receive funding for study abroad and learn a less commonly taught language, but to start a career working on important national and international issues after graduation!
Boren Awards provide funding to U.S. undergraduate students (first years through seniors) to study less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. interests and underrepresented in study abroad: Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America and Middle East.
In exchange for the funding awardees work one year at a federal agency around issues of national security defined very broadly, such as sustainable development, environment, disease, migration and economic competitiveness as well as more traditional security concerns.
Awardees (who must be U.S. citizens) can be given up to:
$20,000/Academic year study abroad
$10,000/Semester study abroad
$8,000/Summer study abroad (only for STEM students)
Competitive applicants will generally have a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
