Boren Scholarship and Critical Language Scholarship Information Session: Language, Culture, Service


The Center for Graduate Studies and Fellowship Advisement will host an information session about the Boren Award and Critical Language Scholarships on Wednesday, October 31 at 12pm in Miguel 311.

Boren Scholarships provide funding opportunities for U.S. undergraduate and graduate students to study less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. interests, and underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East.  Boren Scholars represent a vital pool of highly motivated individuals who wish to work in the federal national security arena. In exchange for funding, Boren Scholars commit to working in the federal government for at least one year after graduation.

Critical Language Scholarships (CLS) pay for 8-10 weeks of intensive study in one of 14 critical world languages.  These languages include Azerbaijani, Bangla, Hindi, Indonesian, Korean, Punjabi, Swahili, Turkish, Urdu, Arabic, Persian, Chinese, Japanese, and Russian. 

If you are interested in studying languages or working in the federal government, these opportunities may be right for you.  This information session will address eligibility and application procedures for both scholarships.

Please see Br. Daniel in Thomas 3.50 for more information.
