8. Is there a language proficiency requirement for Boren Scholarship applicants?

Faq Category: 

For most languages, there are no language proficiency requirements. Your overseas program should be appropriate for your language ability.

In the cases of Spanish and French, there are language proficiency requirements. If you study French through the African Flagship Languages Initiative, you must be at an intermediate high level or above. For all other applicants for French or Spanish, you must already be an advanced speaker (or intermediate, if you are a STEM major).
