Fellowships to USA graduate students for opportunities to study abroad. Students will study cultures and languages in eligible foreign countries. The purpose of the program is to offer students the opportunity to gain knowledge that will assist them with future governmental careers. Students from diverse fields of study immerse themselves in the cultures in world regions underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
Regional Flagship Language Initiatives offer Boren Scholars and Boren Fellows carefully-selected, credit-bearing language courses during the summer (domestic) and fall (overseas), with the option to continue overseas study into the spring:
Or, applicants can select or design their own study programs.
For more information on the Regional Flagship Language Initiatives, see https://www.borenawards.org/initiatives.
Boren Fellows must have a serious language component in their overseas study proposals. This is the only required element, so proposals to enroll in a traditional language program will be sufficient. Graduate students are encouraged to simultaneously pursue research relevant to their degrees, additional academic coursework, and/or internships. If these activities are conducted in the target language, they may be considered part of the language component of the proposal. Graduate students may also supplement their overseas study with private tutoring.
