17. I have never traveled or studied abroad before. Should I apply?

Faq Category: 

Yes. In fact, you are encouraged to apply. One of the objectives of the Boren Scholarship is to expand international educational opportunities for students who have not studied abroad and who may require financial assistance to do so. Please work closely with your study abroad office and your Boren campus representative who can provide support as you apply for scholarship assistance. You can also contact IIE at boren@iie.org or 1-800-618-NSEP (6737) with questions about the application process.
