The National Security Education Program (NSEP) / Boren scholarships are awarded to undergraduates studying abroad in world regions critical to U.S. interests. Preference is given to those pursuing studies of less commonly taught languages. Applicants must be U.S. citizens and selection is based on academic merit. The maximum award amount is $8,000 for summer, $10,000 for one semester, and $20,000 for a full academic year. Award recipients must fulfill a service requirement upon graduation, working for selected federal departments and agencies. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit draft applications to Global Education Oregon for review at least one month prior to the UO deadline.
