Boren Awards

The application for the Boren Awards is at!

Boren Awards fund U.S. undergraduate and graduate language study and research abroad in world regions critical to U.S. national interests (including Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East).

The South Asian Flagship Languages Initiative (SAFLI) offers Boren Awards applicants the special opportunity to study Hindi or Urdu by participating in domestic and overseas language programs in India. Created in partnership with experienced program providers, SAFLI is appropriate for applicants with no language proficiency, as well as those with intermediate and advanced proficiency in Hindi or Urdu.

This immersive program begins with an intensive summer domestic language institute at the University of Wisconsin, followed by a fall overseas program in India administered by the American Councils for International Education (in Jaipur for Hindi and Lucknow for Urdu.) Awardees also have the option to continue their Boren Awards-funded language study in India in the spring in a program they identify themselves.

The Boren Scholarships provide up to $20,000 for undergraduate students for language-focused study abroad.
