Students interested in academic programs abroad, in countries other than Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and all those of Western Europe, may want to learn more about the NSEP Boren Scholarship. The Boren Scholarship Program is designed to increase US knowledge of languages and countries deemed to have security interest for the US. Applicants must write a statement of purpose that discusses their plans to “address important global economic, political and social issues affecting national security.” Recipients must agree to a “service requirement,” to work either in a federal agency with national security responsibilities or in an academic field related to the area of study for which the scholarship was given.
Students interested in the Boren Scholarship should access the online application on the Boren website and submit it by the deadline. Students will receive feedback and will have the chance to revise and resubmit their application before formal internal review.
There is no limit on the number of students who may apply from Bryn Mawr. Each applicant will be reviewed and rated by an on-campus committee. Interested students are encouraged to contact Dean Mancini in the fall semester or over winter break.
