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.
