Submitted by Caterina Rost on December 9, 2015 - 9:27am

The Boren scholarship for undergraduates deadline is approaching. The Seattle campus deadline is: January 11, 2016.

Here’s the CliffsNotes version of the Boren Undergraduate Scholarship:

Award Amounts:

  • $8,000 for a summer program (special initiative for STEM students only)
  • $10,000 for a semester abroad (think about anyone you know going on a relevant exchange)
  • $20,000 for a full academic year


  • Scholarship to be used for study abroad programs that include language
  • Preference given to less commonly taught languages:
  • Students must be able to articulate the significance of their proposed country, region or language to U.S. National Security. This is broadly defined and could include challenges of global society: sustainable development, environmental degradation, global disease and hunger, population growth and migration, economic competitiveness among others. 
  • If awarded, students must agree to work for the government.
