DESCRIPTION: Boren Scholarships provide up to $10,000 per semester or $20,000
per academic year to U.S. undergraduate students to study abroad in 2013-14
in areas of the world that are critical to U.S. interests and
underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern
Europe, Eurasia, Latin American, and the Middle East. The program draws on a
broad definition of national security, recognizing that the scope of national
security has expanded to include not only the traditional concerns of
protecting and promoting American well-being, but also the challenges of
global society, including sustainable development, environmental degradation,
global disease and hunger, population growth and migration, and economic
competitiveness.

LANGUAGE STUDY: Boren Scholars typically include substantial language study
in their study abroad programs. (Exception: students applying to study abroad
in French or Spanish speaking regions of the world should already have
advanced proficiency in French or Spanish.) For a complete list of languages
and regions please visit the Boren Scholarship website.

AFRICAN LANGUAGES INITIATIVE: Boren Scholarship applicants have the
opportunity to deepen their knowledge of, and proficiency in, African
languages and cultures. Through the initiative, supplemental funding will be
available for Boren Scholars to study one of the following languages at the
University of Florida’s summer 2013 program prior to commencing their
overseas Boren Scholarship funded program: Akan/Twi, Swahili, Wolof, Yoruba,
Hausa, French, and Zulu. In addition, African Languages Initiative overseas
programs are available for intensive language and cultural study during fall
semester 2013 in the following countries: Tanzania (Swahili), Mozambique
(Portuguese), Nigeria (Yoruba), Senegal (French), and South Africa (Zulu).

PROGRAM PREFERENCES: The Boren Scholarship program strongly prefers proposals
for TWO semester of study abroad (with the exception of applicants in the
sciences, engineering and mathematics, who are free to apply to summer-only
or single-semester programs). While single-semester applications are
permitted, we encourage students to consider more than one semester of study
abroad whenever possible. Preferred combinations include: Summer + Fall
semesters abroad and Fall + Spring semesters abroad. Summer-only proposals
are limited to Science/Engineering and Math majors, though students in these
major may apply for two semester of study abroad as well. SENIORS ARE
ELIGIBLE TO APPLY.

AWARD: Awards depend on the actual cost of the proposed study abroad
programs. Maximum scholarship awards are: $10,000 for one semester and
$20,000 for two semesters or a full academic year.

SERVICE EXPECTATION: The Boren Scholarship program seeks applicants who are
strongly interested in exploring possibilities for U.S. Government
employment, and applications from students expressing a strong interest in
Federal service will be preferred. Recipients of Boren Scholarships are
expected to work for the Federal Government for one year. Boren Scholars must
begin fulfilling the service requirement within three years of graduation.
