Information session to discuss Fulbright and Boren awards

The Office of International Programs will host an information session on the Fulbright and Boren student grant programs on Wednesday, April 24 at noon in SUB 168.

 

About 1,500 students receive Fulbright Scholarships each year after submitting statements defining individually designed study and research projects or English teaching assistantship activities to take place during one academic year.

 

To apply for the Fulbright Scholarship, one must be a U.S. citizen and have a bachelor’s degree, but not the highest degree, by time of grant.

 

The Boren Scholarship provides up to $20,000 to undergraduate students to study abroad in areas of the world that are critical to U.S. interests, including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America and the Middle East. Boren Scholars are interested in studying less commonly taught languages such as Arabic, Portuguese, Russian and Swahili.

 

Boren Scholarship applicants must be U.S. citizens by time of grant and currently enrolled as undergraduate students.

 

The Boren Fellowship provides up to $30,000 to U.S. graduate students to add international and language components to their graduate educations. Like Boren Scholarships, Fellowships support study and research in areas of the world that are critical to U.S. interests.

 

Boren Fellowship applicants should be enrolled in a graduate program by time of grant.
