Boren Scholarships and Fellowships
BOREN SCHOLARSHIPS AND FELLOWSHIPS: Provide unique funding opportunities for US undergraduate and graduate students to study in Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East, where they can add important international and language components to their educations. Boren scholars and fellows represent a variety of academic backgrounds, but all are interested in studying less commonly taught languages, including Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Swahili. As part of the African Languages Initiative, Boren applicants have the opportunity to further their study of Akan/Twi, French, Hausa, Portuguese, Swahili, Wolof, Yoruba, or Zulu. For a complete list of languages, visit our website. Undergraduate students can receive up to $20,000 for an academic year’s study abroad, graduate students up to $30,000 for language study and international research. In exchange for funding, recipients commit to working in the federal government for a minimum of one year. For more information, visit www.borenawards.org or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
