Dear students,
See below for a fellowship opportunity for study of languages abroad. They are having information sessions this week (scroll all the way  They say you need to be committed to a career in public service, which they define broadly (think not only stuff like CIA, state department, but also CDC, et cetera).
Take care,

Subject: Boren Fellowship for Study of Critical Language Abroad

Dear Graduate Directors,
Greetings from The Graduate School!  As the Fellowships Advisor, I work with students applying to nationally competitive fellowships.  We have someone from Boren visiting on Wednesday (and also doing a virtual session in November) to talk about this study abroad scholarship which funds students to go abroad to study a critical language with the option to also conduct research.  Students must be committed to a career in public service and should be prepared to make a connection between their field of study and US national security- defined broadly to include both traditional areas (diplomacy, defense, intelligence) and also any topic addressing challenges facing global society (Public Health, Cybersecurity, Food Security, Economics, Transportation, Energy, Migration, etc).

I hope you might help me spread the word to your students.  Here’s the website, and more details are in the email below:<>
You and your students are very welcome to reach out to me with any questions.  Interested students are strongly encouraged to work with me on their applications.
Thank you,

Katrina Helz, M.A. (she/her/hers)
