The countries of Western Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand are excluded.  The Boren Fellowship allows graduate students to add an important international and language component to their graduate studies.  Boren Fellows can be awarded up to $30,000.

Boren Scholars 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.  Additional information on preferred geographic regions, languages, fields of study, federal service commitment and application procedures can be found at
