Major grant opportunity for international educators

Institute of International Education Invites Applications for Boren Scholarships and Fellowships

An initiative of the National Security Education Program, the Boren Awards provide funding for U.S. undergraduate and graduate students to study in regions of the globe that are critical to U.S. interests, including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East.

While Boren scholars and fellows represent a variety of academic backgrounds, all are interested in studying less commonly taught languages, including but not limited to Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Swahili. As part of the African Languages Initiative, Boren Award applicants have the opportunity to further their study of Akan/Twi, French, Hausa, Portuguese, Swahili, Wolof, Yoruba, or Zulu.  

Boren Scholarships provide up to $20,000 to U.S. undergraduate students to study abroad in areas of the world that are critical to U.S. interests and underrepresented in study-abroad programs. (Deadline: February 4, 2015)

Boren Fellowships provide up to $30,000 to U.S. graduate students to add an international and language component to their graduate education through specialization in area study, language study, or increased language proficiency. (Deadline: January 27, 2015)

In exchange for funding, recipients commit to working in the federal government for a minimum of one year.

For complete program guidelines, application instructions, and a schedule of informational webinar sessions, see the Boren Awards Web site.
