The Boren Fellowships award graduate students up to $30,000 for language study and independent research in countries and languages deemed critical to U.S. national security interests. NSEP draws on a broad definition of national security, recognizing that the scope includes not only the traditional concerns of protecting and promoting American well-being, but also the challenges of global society such as sustainable development, environmental degradation, global disease and hunger, population growth and migration, and economic competitiveness. All types of University of Chicago graduate students win the Boren. In past years, fellows have come from the Center for Latin American Studies, the Committee on International Relations, the Political Science department, the School of Social Service Administration, the Law School, the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, and the Master’s of Arts Program in Social Sciences.

The internal deadline for the 2016-2017 application cycle is January 14, 2016 at 5pm. Students who meet the internal deadline will have an interview with a faculty committee and receive critical feedback on their applications in the two weeks leading up to final deadline (January 28, 2016). For more information about the program and tips on applying, visit the Boren website or contact Jessica Smith at jessicasmith@uchicago.edu.
