--Award:  Scholarships are available for Summer 2006, Fall 2006 and/or Spring 2007.

NSEP Boren scholarships are merit based. Award amounts are based on the study abroad costs and financial aid information provided by the applicant. The maximum award is $8,000 for a summer, $10,000 for a semester, or $20,000 for a full academic year. Students must inform NSEP of any additional outside funding they receive for their study abroad program.  The NSEP service requirement stipulates all award recipients work in the Department of Defense, Homeland Security, State or the Intelligence Community for one year, within 3 years of graduation.  Contact Campus Representative for details.

 

NSEP David L. Boren Undergraduate Scholars represent a vital pool of highly motivated individuals who wish to work in the federal national security arena.
