  • Explore the Boren Awards website
    • Search our Eligible Countries page to see where the Boren may take you
    • Search our Eligible Languages page to see the many languages available for study with Boren funding (and note that the Boren Awards program *does not* require prior knowledge of most of these languages – IIE understands that these languages are seldom offered at universities! That’s why Boren funding is available!
    • Search our Eligible Fields of Study to see the many disciplines Boren funding supports (and note that only STEM majors are eligible for summer awards in addition to the longer study-abroad awards)
