The Boren Awards, part of the National Security Education Program, offer funding to US undergraduate and graduate students for international study with a focus on language acquisition and cultural study in regions of the world that are essential to US national security.

The National Security Education Program (NSEP) is designed to build a broader and more qualified pool of U.S. citizens with foreign language and international skills. Established by Congress in 1991, NSEP consists of multiple initiatives, including Boren Scholarships, Boren Fellowships, and the Language Flagship. Boren 
Scholarships and Fellowships provide funding for U.S. undergraduate and graduate students to study the languages and cultures of Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East.

The Office of International Programs will host a series of information sessions that will explain the Boren Awards and walk students through the application process.
