Information Session- Study Abroad Information Session about the NSEP Scholarship & Fellowship Program
802 WPU (Study Abroad Office)
The National Security Education Program (NSEP) provides a unique funding opportunity for U.S. students to study world regions critical to U.S. interests (including Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America & the Caribbean, and the Middle East). The countries of Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are excluded. NSEP was designed to provide Americans with the resources and encouragement they need to acquire skills and experiences in areas of the world critical to the future security of our nation in exchange for a commitment to seek work in the federal government. As students of other cultures and languages, Boren Scholars and Fellows begin to acquire the international competence needed to communicate effectively across borders, to understand other perspectives, and to analyze economic and political affairs.
The National Security Education Program includes three components:
The National Security Education Program David L. Boren Scholarships for Study Abroad offers opportunities for U.S. undergraduate students to study in world regions critical to U.S. interests but generally underrepresented in study abroad.
The National Security Education Program David L. Boren Fellowships enable U.S. graduate students to add an important international and language component to their graduate education through specialization in area study, language study, or increased language proficiency.
The Language Flagship offers Fellowships for advanced language training in Arabic, Central Asian languages, Korean, Mandarin, Persian, or Russian For more information, please visit http://www.iie.org/programs/nsep/default.htm.
