Make sure the Boren Fellowship is on your radar. The Boren Fellowships provide funding to U.S. citizens who are pursuing international and language study in world regions critical to U.S. interests, such as Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East. Boren Fellowships for graduate students provide up to $30,000 for language study and international research. Boren Fellowship awards are made for a minimum of 12 weeks and maximum of 24 months.
Recipients of a Boren Fellowship accept a Service Requirement to work for the federal government in the national security arena. Award recipients are not guaranteed a federal job after graduation – they must secure a position themselves.
The 2015-16 application deadline is January 27, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. EST. Boren Fellowship applicants will be notified of their status by mail in late April.
