Boren Scholarships, an initiative of the National Security Education Program, provide unique funding opportunities for U.S. undergraduate students to study less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. interests, and underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East. The countries of Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are excluded.
In exchange for funding, Boren Scholars commit to working in the federal government for at least one year after graduation.
UNC Charlotte encourages students studying less common languages and in areas of the world referenced above to apply for a Boren Scholarship. There will be a workshop on campus on November 19 in Cone 111 from 10:00 am to 11:00 am.
