Boren Awards Information Sessions
These information sessions are open to all undergraduate and graduate students in all majors.
This scholarship provides recipients with a fully-funded opportunity to study abroad in a non-Western, non-English speaking country. The study abroad program must include (but is not limited to) the study of a critical language.
Information sessions will be held virtually on:
* Tuesday, August 25 -- 3:30-4:45pm (combined information session: Boren + Critical Language Scholarship)
* Wednesday, November 4 -- 11am-noon (featuring a representative from the Boren team at IIE)
* Thursday, November 19 -- 12:30-1:30pm
The first of these sessions will offer information about both the Critical Language Scholarship and the Boren Awards, while the others will focus only on the Boren Awards. If you register for the combined info session here, you do not need to also register on the Critical Language Scholarship Information Session registration form (or vice versa).
The two November sessions will be identical. Zoom links will be provided within 24 hours of each session to those who register.
