Carriage House (behind the Morreale House Career Center)

Come meet with a representative from the U.S. Boren Awards, and learn how to be a competitive applicant for the Boren Scholarship (undergraduate) and Fellowship (graduate)!

Boren Awards are nationally-competitive funding study abroad scholarships for U.S. citizens, centered around three pillars:

  • Language: Boren Scholars and Fellows study a wide range of critical languages, including Arabic, Chinese, Portuguese, and Swahili. Boren Awards are available to students of all proficiency levels who are committed to enhancing their skills.
  • Culture: Boren Scholars and Fellows from diverse fields of study immerse themselves in the cultures in world regions underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
  • Service: Boren Awards alumni are committed to public service, working in positions critical to U.S. national security throughout the Federal Government, including the Departments of State, Defense, and Homeland Security, and USAID.

Boren Scholarships are worth up to $20,000 a year to allow U.S. undergraduate students to study less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. interests but underrepresented in study abroad.

Boren Fellowships encourage U.S. graduate students to add an important international and language component to their education, with up to $24,000 in funding, and can include language study, research, and academic internships.
