Who's Eligible: Undergrad and grad study abroad students

Award Amount: Up to $24,000

These scholarships will not help you pay for college at home, but they will help you take your studies on the road. Designed to help foster study abroad trips to less traveled destinations including Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East, Boren scholarships are made for adventurous students interested in learning about lesser-known languages and cultures. If you have a passion for the languages on this list, it helps. To win these, applicants need to have a firm understanding of "how their study abroad program, as well as their future academic and career goals, will contribute to U.S. national security."
