Boren Information Sessions

Event information

The National Security Education Program awards scholarships to U.S. students for study of world regions and languages critical to U.S. interests (including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Middle East). Ideal candidates for the Boren are students of political science, government, critical languages, international studies, military science, or international business, although students of other social sciences, health sciences, and certain other fields are also encouraged to apply. Students who plan to pursue a career in the government are natural candidates since all recipients of Boren scholarships incur a service requirement within an agency of the federal government with national security responsibilities. NSEP gives preference to applicants who intend to study abroad for a full academic year. Summer-only programs of 8 weeks or more are limited to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics majors. The maximum scholarship award for one semester is $10,000 ($8,000 for summer).

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Scholarship - Each year in early February, Fellowship - Each year in Late January
