UI Undergraduate, Graduate and Professional Students,
International Programs will be hosting an informational session about the Boren Awards on Tuesday, November 16, 2010 from 9:00-10:30 a.m. It will be held in the International Commons, 1117 University Capitol Centre. A Boren representative will be on campus to speak that day and answer any questions you may have about the program, so please plan to attend this event, if you are at all interested in the various awards available.
Boren Awards provide a unique funding opportunity for U.S. students to study world regions critical to U.S. interests (including Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East). The countries of Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are excluded.
The Boren Scholarships provide opportunities for undergraduate students to study in countries that are generally underrepresented in study abroad.
The Boren Fellowships allow graduate students to add an important international and language component to their graduate studies.
Boren Scholars are awarded up to $20,000 for an academic year and Boren Fellows are awarded up to $30,000 for two academic years.
Additional information on preferred geographic regions, languages, and fields of study, as well as application procedures can be found at www.borenawards.org.
