Boren Awards for International Study provide substantial financial support for American undergraduate students who wish to work in the national security arena. Particularly applicable to SFS students is Boren’s broad definition of national security, including the challenges of global society, such as sustainable development, environmental degradation, global disease and hunger, population growth and migration, and economic competitiveness. Award recipients commit to working in the federal government for at least one year after graduation. All SFS semester programs are eligible except SFS Australia; SFS summer programs are ineligible.
