The Boren Scholarship was established by the National Security Education Act of 1991, which created the National Security Education Board, the National Security Education Program and a trust fund in the U.S. Treasury to provide resources for scholarships, fellowships and grants. It is guided by a mission that seeks to lead in development of the national capacity to educate U.S. Citizens, understand foreign cultures, strengthen U.S. Economic competitiveness and enhance international cooperation and security.
The Boren Scholarship was designed to provide American undergraduates with the resources and encouragement they need to acquire skills and experience in countries and areas of the world critical to the future security of our nations. As a student of another culture and language you will begin to acquire the international competence you need to communicate effectively across borders, understand other perspectives and analyze increasingly fluid economic and political realities.
A nomination is required for this scholarship and applicants must work closely with the Fellowships Director and faculty mentor. To discuss the application process, schedule an appointment with the Graduate and Undergratue Fellowships Office (Howarth 114J) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Campus Deadline is in December.
