ETSU Faculty Representative:    

Maria Costa, Director
International Programs and Services
120 Yoakley Hall
Phone: (423) 439-7737
Email: costa@etsu.edu

Website:  http://borenawards.org/boren_scholarship

Award: Up to $20,000 to undertake international travel and study in areas of the world covered by the scholarship.

Eligibility: Applicants must be US citizens, currently enrolled in an accredited college or university in the US, and desire to study in a country other than Australia, Canada, New Zealand or those of Western Europe. 

When to Apply: Applications are usually due in early February.

Funded by the National Security Education Program, Boren Scholarships are designed to help undergraduates from the US study in areas of the world (and languages) that are deemed critical to US national security and yet are underrepresented in traditional study abroad programs. While the scholarship does not require any commitment to future governmental service, candidates need to address in their applications how they believe their international study plans, and future academic and career goals, might contribute to US security interests.  As stated on the NSEP's website, the organization "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."
