10/31 NSEP Boren Fellowship Information Session

NSEP Boren Fellowship Information Session

Wednesday, October 31, 11:30 am – 12:30 pm, Social Sciences 122


Jeff Cary, Boren Awards Outreach & Recruitment Manager, will visit the UChicago campus to present to undergraduate and graduate students on their Scholarship and Fellowship opportunities. The Boren Fellowships award graduate students up to $30,000 to spend 6-12 months abroad studying less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. interests and national security (including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East). Students may combine language study with an internship,  research, or additional coursework if they choose. NSEP draws on a broad definition of national security, recognizing that the scope includes not only the traditional concerns of protecting and promoting American well-being, but also the challenges of global society such as sustainable development, environmental degradation, global disease and hunger, population growth and migration, and economic competitiveness. Boren Fellows work for the federal government for one year after completion of the fellowship. The internal deadline for the 2019-2020 application cycle for UChicago graduate students is January 21, 2019 at 4pm CST. Register in GRAD Gargoyle (Events > GRAD Events).
