OGCS/Boren Awards Information Session
Department:WWS Office of Graduate Career Services
Audience:Restricted to WWS graduate students
A Boren Awards representative will be visiting campus to provide information about the Boren Fellowship and the Boren Scholarship. Both awards are initiatives of the National Security Education Program to provide unique funding opportunities for U.S. 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. The countries of Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are excluded.
Boren Fellows and Boren Scholars represent a vital pool of highly motivated individuals who wish to work in the federal national security arena. In exchange for funding, Boren Fellows commit to working in the federal government for at least one year after graduation.
