Boren Fellowships for Graduate Students

Description

Boren Awards 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. Boren Fellowships applicants may be matriculated in or applying to a graduate degree program located within the United States and accredited by a body recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Boren Fellows must be matriculated in a graduate degree program by the start date of their fellowship and may not graduate until the fellowship is complete. Eligible graduate degree programs include masterÔÇÖs (MA, MS, MBA, LLM and others), juris doctor (JD), or doctoral (PhD, MD and others) programs. Non-degree certificate programs are not eligible by themselves. To prove matriculation, grantees will be required to submit a letter from a dean or registrar at their home institution stating that their graduation date will occur after the completion of their Boren Scholarship or Fellowship. Boren Fellowships Maximum Award Amounts: 12-24 weeks is $12,500 and 25-52 weeks is $25,000. Boren Fellows have the option to apply for up to $12,000 for domestic summer intensive language courses. If requested, the maximum total combined domestic and overseas award amount is $30,000. Applicants must be planning an overseas program in a country outside of Western Europe, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand. Applicants must be planning to study in a country of which they are not a citizen. The application includes two essays, with a maximum of 800 words for each essay. The Boren Fellowships application requires three Letters of Recommendation. Applicants are also encouraged to include a Language Evaluation of the Boren language, which should be filled out by a recent instructor in that language.
