David L. Boren Scholarships from the National Security Education Program 2022
Boren Scholarships support undergraduate students to study abroad in areas of the world that are critical to U.S. interests such as geographic areas, languages, and fields that are relevant to national security. The scholarship program is sponsored by the National Security Educational Program (NSEP).
Boren Scholarships provide about $20,000 to U.S. undergraduate students to study abroad in areas of the world that are important to U.S. interests. Boren scholars show different academic backgrounds, but all are interested in studying less popularly taught languages.
NSEP has a broad definition of national security, explaining that the scope of national security has expanded to include not only the traditional concerns of protecting and promoting American well-being but also many others like the challenges of global society, sustainable development, environmental degradation, global disease and hunger, population growth and migration, as well as economic competitiveness.
As stated above, Boren Scholarships are for undergraduate students. To be eligible to apply, you must be;
- A U.S. citizen at the time of application.
- A high school graduate, or have earned a GED.
- Matriculated in an undergraduate degree program located within the United States accredited by an accrediting body recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Boren Scholars must remain matriculated in their undergraduate programs for the duration of the scholarship and may not graduate until the scholarship is complete.
- Apply to a study abroad program that aligns with the home institution standards in a country outside of Western Europe, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand. Boren Scholarships are not for study in the United States.
