Dear Graduate and Professional Students,

We write to share an opportunity to gain insightful professional, cultural and linguistic experience. The 2018-2019 Boren Fellowship application is open and we strongly encourage you to consider applying.

The David L. Boren Fellowship provides up to $30,000 to U.S. graduate students to add an important international and language component to their graduate education through specialization in area study, language study, or increased language proficiency. Boren Fellowships support study and research in areas of the world that are critical to U.S. interests, including Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Boren Fellows represent a wide variety of academic and professional disciplines, but all are interested in studying less commonly taught languages, including but not limited to Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and Swahili. In addition to language study, graduate applicants have the option to propose research, academic study, professional internship, or any combination of the above.

Boren Fellowships are funded by the National Security Education Program (NSEP), which focuses on geographic areas, languages, and fields of study deemed critical to U.S. national security. Applicants should identify how their projects, as well as their future academic and career goals, will contribute to U.S. national security, broadly defined.  NSEP 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.

Fellowship recipients are responsible for fulfilling a NSEP Service Requirement within two years of graduating, within one or more of many eligible federal agencies.


U.S. citizens only

Must be matriculated into your graduate program

May not graduate until the fellowship is complete

Applications are submitted online. UW applicants are not required, but are highly encouraged to submit by the early campus deadline in order to participate in an on-campus interview process.
