Boren Scholarships for Undergraduate Students

The Boren Scholarship funds the intensive study of language and culture abroad for U.S. undergraduate students who are planning for a career in public service. The program promotes long-term linguistic and cultural immersion, and encourages experiences that last two semesters or more, or 8+ weeks for STEM majors. After graduation, all Boren Scholars complete a one-year federal service requirement by working for one of many government agencies.
