Boren Special Initiative for STEM majors
Boren Scholarships provide unique funding opportunities for U.S. undergraduate students to study abroad in world regions critical to U.S. interests and underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
Boren also offers a special initiative for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) majors that provides funding for summer study (minimum of 8 weeks). (All other applicants must plan to study overseas for at least a semester.) STEM field majors may also apply for semester and year programs. In exchange for funding, recipients commit to working in the federal government for a minimum of one year.
