Apply for a 2018 Boren Graduate Fellowship

Boren Fellowships (for graduate students) provide up to $30,000 to U.S. graduate students to add an important international and language component to their graduate education through specialization in area study, language study, or increased language proficiency. Boren Fellowships are funded by the National Security Education Program (NSEP), which focuses on geographic areas, languages, and fields of study deemed critical to U.S. national security (broadly defined).

Complete information on the Boren Fellowships, the campus deadline & review process, and more can be found here.
