Featured awards:

Tillman Military Scholars Program

Supports high-impact active or veteran service members and their spouses by covering the needs left unpaid by the GI Bill and other government support.  Scholarship amounts are determined by the strength of the applicant and extent of financial need; with funds averaging $11,000 per award, per year of the enrolled degree program. In addition to financial support, the Tillman Scholars become members of an engaged network and gain essential resources that empower them to serve and lead in their local communities and ease the transition from military to civilian life. For more information, go to our Tillman Military Scholars page.

Boren Awards

Awards designed to provide undergraduate and graduate students with the resources and encouragement they need to acquire skills and experience in countries and areas of the world critical to the future security of our nation. Boren requires language study as part of the program, as well as one-year government service post-award. Students design their own programs and must make a case for why their project is in the national security interest of the United States. For more information, go to our Boren_Awards page.

Fulbright US Student Programs
Two programs designed to give recent B.S./B.A. graduates and graduate students opportunities for personal development and international experience. The Study/Research grants fund self-designed or degree programs and may include university coursework, independent library or field research, music or art classes, special projects, or a combination.  The English Teaching Assistant (ETA) Program allows students to work 20-30 hours/week in an English language classroom, under the supervision of a classroom teacher, and to undertake individual projects outside the classroom. Both programs promote cross-cultural interaction and mutual understanding between the US and the host countries. For more information, go to our Fulbright_Study_Research and Fulbright ETA pages.
