Two of the National Security Education Program (NSEP) Boren Undergraduate Scholarship for 2018-2019 are heading to East Asia. Boren Scholarships provide up to $20,000 to U.S. undergraduate students so they can focus on geographic areas, languages, and fields of study deemed critical to U.S. national security through study abroad programs. Boren Scholars study less commonly taught languages, including but not limited to Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Swahili. NSEP’s broad definition of national security has expanded to address the challenges of global society, including sustainable development, environmental degradation, global disease and hunger, population growth and migration, and economic competitiveness.
