The David L. Boren awards includes undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowships and are funded by The National Security Education Program, which focuses on geographic areas, languages, and fields of study deemed critical to U.S. National security. These awards provide American students 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 their commitment to seek work in the federal government.
