Boren Scholarships and Fellowships


Spring Deadline (February).  

Funds undergraduate (Boren Scholarship) and graduate (Boren Fellowship) immersive language study. The focus is on studying less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. national-security interests, including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Boren undergraduate awards can be for a semester, a year, and for STEM students only, an 8-11-week summer program. Boren graduate awards can combine domestic language study with international immersion. Boren Scholars and Fellows commit to one year of work with the federal government sometime after their time abroad ends.
