Boren Critical Languages Awards - Meet a Representative!

Are you strongly focused on studying a critical language, and using your language skills in your career? Are you very interested in working for the US government in an internationally-related role? If so, learn about the Boren Scholarship program!

The Boren Scholarship is aimed at undergraduates (US citizens) who want to study abroad for one or two semesters (preferably) in 2020-21 in non-traditional regions and countries, and who are interested in learning the languages of those areas. Maryland students have won more Boren Scholarships than those of any other school over the past 8 years!

A representative from the Boren Program will present at 4 pm this Friday, October 11, in the Global Crossroads lounge in H. J. Patterson Hall (use doors facing the Edward St. John Building). Please RSVP to nsepboren@umd.edu .

Eligible Boren study regions include Africa, South Asia, East and Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe and former Soviet Republics, Latin America, and the Middle East. (Boren Scholarships MAY NOT be used for study in Western Europe, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand.) Boren Scholarships may be used for study abroad in Summer 2020, Fall 2020 and Fall/Spring 2020-21. 

*The Boren Scholarship is a U.S. Government-funded award that seeks applicants who have a strong interest in future Government service; the award carries a one-year service expectation.*
