The National Security Education Program (NSEP) David L. Boren Graduate Fellowships enable U.S. graduate students to pursue specialization in area and language study or to add an international dimension to their education. Boren Fellowships support students pursuing the study of languages, cultures, and world regions that are critical to U.S. national security but are less frequently studied by U.S. graduate students, i.e., areas of the world other than Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Boren Fellowship awards are made for a minimum of one and a maximum of six academic semesters (24 months). Fellowships provide support for overseas or domestic study, or a combination of both.
The Graduate School of Language and Educational Linguistics prepares outstanding teachers of English as a Second Language and Teachers of Foreign Languages and provides exciting, stimulating language classes to graduate students in all the disciplines, including business, policy studies, trade and education. The foreign language classes include both skills classes (writing, conversation, public speaking) and "content" classes such as Business Concepts in French, Spanish, German and Japanese, Twentieth Century China (in Chinese), Personalities in Russian Politics (in Russian), and Environmental Policy Issues in four to six languages.
