Boren Graduate Fellowship

Boren Fellowships, an initiative of the National Security Education Program, provide funding for US graduate students to study less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to US interests.  Boren Fellowships provide funding for overseas language study, academic study, research, an academic internship, or a combination of the above (though all proposals must include a significant language component).  Boren Fellows commit to working in the federal government for at least one year after graduation.

Penn’s Application Process:  Submit your application materials directly through the Boren Fellowship website by January 17, 2023, 4:00 pm.  CURF is then responsible for the final submission of your application.
