There are two separate award programs:
1. The Boren Scholarship provides opportunities for undergraduate students to study in countries that are generally underrepresented in study abroad. Boren Scholars are awarded up to $20,000 for an academic year.
UW-Madison’s campus application deadline for the 2015-2016 undergraduate scholarship program is December 5th, 2014. Undergraduates should contact Matthew Geisler (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
2. The Boren Fellowship allows graduate students to add an important international and language component to their graduate studies.
