Boren Fellowships and Critical Language Scholarships Info Session – Arlington

September 27, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Learn more about opportunities for fully funded overseas study, research, and language training opportunities for graduate students through the Boren Fellowships Program and the Critical Language Scholarship program from Director of Graduate Fellowships Dr. Kay Agoston, GMU Campus Advisor for these programs.

The Boren and CLS programs seek graduate students interested in topics related to US national and international security, peace, and development, and who wish to study a language and a region outside western Europe – including Arabic, Chinese, Turkish, Russian, Korean, Swahili, Urdu, and many more.  These programs are open to graduate students in ALL fields of study.  US citizenship is required.

Boren Fellowships  can be used to fund overseas research, study, and professional development that includes language training. Domestic language study may also be supported in combination with overseas training. Critical Language Scholarships support intensive summer language training in 14 critical-needs languages.

Alumni of this program receive hiring preferences from the US federal government, making it a great stepping stone for students interested in government and policy-related careers.

The application deadline for CLS is in November, and Boren in January.  Both applications require considerable advance planning and preparation, thus interested students are encouraged to attend NOW to learn more about the process.

This session will be held at the Arlington Campus in Founders 716, but all Mason students are welcome to attend if this time / location is more accessible to them.
