Boren Fellowship - Where Can I Study?
Boren Fellows may study abroad in Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East. Students may apply to study in any country outside of the United States, Western Europe, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand. Multi-country comparative studies must be well justified.
The program will give preference to applicants planning to study in one of the following emphasized countries:
* NSEP did not make awards for these countries in 2015. You may still apply for a 2016 Boren Award to study in one of these countries; however, you must include a viable alternate plan in another appropriate country for the same language of study.
Note: Boren Fellows may only study in a country with a U.S. State Department travel warning if they are willing to sign a waiver. In certain countries, further restrictions may apply, including possible outright prohibition on using the Boren Fellowship in a particular country. In such cases, IIE will work with the Fellow to find an alternate program. Information about travel warnings is available on the State Department website.
