Scholarships available for national security careers

Oct. 31, 2006

KALAMAZOO--Chris Powers, a representative from the Institute of International Education will speak with interested Western Michigan University students Thursday, Nov. 2, at 10 a.m. in Room 211 of the Bernhard Center about scholarships and fellowships available through the National Security Education Program.

The presentation is for WMU students, faculty and academic advisors interested in learning how students can apply for scholarships for study related to careers in national security.

NSEP's David L. Boren Scholarships provide opportunities for undergraduate students to study in regions of the world critical to U.S. interests, which are generally underrepresented in study abroad programs. The competitive scholarships offer up to $8,000 for summer, $10,000 for a semester and $20,000 for a full academic year.

Study abroad programs in the countries of Western Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand are excluded from this scholarship opportunity. Study in most other countries is included. Additional information on preferred geographic regions, languages and fields of study and application procedures can be found at www.iie.org/nsep.
