About the Boren Fellowship: The Boren Fellowships award graduate students up to $30,000 for language study and independent research in countries and languages deemed critical to U.S. national security interests. 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 health, population growth and migration, cultural exchange, and economic competitiveness. Previous UChicago Boren winners have come from Social Service Administration, Political Science, Latin American Studies, Master’s in Arts in Social Sciences, the Committee on International Relations, Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, the Center for Middle East Studies, the Law School and more.
