National Security Education Program: David L. Boren Undergraduate Scholarships

NSEP was designed to provide American undergraduates with the resources and encouragement they need to acquire skills and experience in countries and areas of the world critical to the future security of our nation. As a student of another culture and language you will begin to acquire the international competence you need to communicate effectively across borders, understand other perspectives and analyze increasingly fluid economic and political realities. The amount of an NSEP Boren scholarship award is based on financial need, as certified by your institution's financial aid office. The amount will vary from the cost of participation in a proposed study abroad program, to partial support. The maximum scholarship award for any one academic term in a study abroad program will be about $10,000 or $20,000 for an academic year. The minimum award will be $2,500 for summer, $4,000 for one semester or $6,000 for an academic year.
