Note: Boren Scholars may only study in a country with a U.S. State Department Travel warning if they are willing to sign a waiver.  Students must also have a responsible officer of their home institution certify that study in that particular country is allowable under the home institution's policies.  Click here to view the Institutional Travel Warning Form.  This form is not required until award decisions have been made in May. Students planning on applying for study in one of these countries should check with their study abroad offices to determine what the university policies are. Information about active travel warnings is available on the State Department website.
