A representative from the Institute for International Education (IIE) will be visiting the Texas A&M Campus on Wednesday, September 1st to present information on the Boren Awards, a unique funding opportunity for U.S. students to study world regions critical to U.S. interests. The presentation will be from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm in Bizzell Hall West, Rm. 358.
Boren awards for undergraduates fund study in countries that are generally underrepresented in study abroad. Boren awards for graduate students add an important international and language component to their graduate studies. Undergraduate students are awarded up to $20,000 for an academic year and graduate students are awarded up to $30,000 for two academic years.
Additional information on preferred geographic regions, languages, and fields of study, as well as application procedures can be found at www.borenawards.org.
