The Boren scholarship for undergraduates deadline is approaching and I’d greatly appreciate you sharing the information with your students. The Seattle campus deadline is: January 11, 2016.
Here’s the CliffsNotes version of the Boren Undergraduate Scholarship:
- $8,000 for a summer program (special initiative for STEM students only)
- $10,000 for a semester abroad (think about anyone you know going on a relevant exchange)
- $20,000 for a full academic year
- Scholarship to be used for study abroad programs that include language
- Preference given to less commonly taught languages: http://www.borenawards.org/boren_scholarship/preferences.html
- Students must be able to articulate the significance of their proposed country, region or language to U.S. National Security. This is broadly defined and could include challenges of global society: sustainable development, environmental degradation, global disease and hunger, population growth and migration, economic competitiveness among others.
