Boren Awards Application Announcement

The applications for the 2014-2015 David L. Boren Scholarships and
Fellowships are now available at www.borenawards.org. Boren Awards
provide unique funding opportunities for U.S. undergraduate and
graduate students to study in Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe,
Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East, where they can add
important international and language components to their educations.

Boren Scholars and Fellows represent a variety of academic
backgrounds, but 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. For a complete list of languages, visit our website.

Undergraduate students can receive up to $20,000 for an academic
year’s study abroad and graduate students up to $30,000 for language
study and international research. In exchange for funding, recipients
commit to working in the federal government for a minimum of one year.
