Boren Awards for International Study
Boren Scholarships and Fellowships provide unique funding opportunities for U.S. undergraduate and graduate students to study less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. interests and underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
Boren Award amounts are based on the length of time the Boren Scholar or Fellows spends overseas and the cost of the program. Boren Scholarships can provide undergraduate students with up to $20,000, and Boren Fellowships can provide graduate students with up to $30,000.
Dr. Melinda Grimsley-Smith in the Office of Scholar Development works with students applying for the Boren Scholarship.
Set up a meeting with Dr. Grimsley-Smith to discuss your plans for critical language study and scholarship applications by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 270.745.5043.
