Boren Scholarships Campus Representatives
Boren was designed with national goals in mind, but the process itself is campus-based. As such, the commitment of U.S. colleges and universities to promote study abroad for a cross-section of students is critical to its successful implementation. Boren Scholarships campus representatives include individuals from a broad range of campus positions and departments. Still, all are asked to do the following:
Set an on-campus deadline. Your on-campus deadline for receipt of undergraduate applications should be set far enough in advance for you and/or a committee to interview applicants and complete the rating process before the national deadline of February 13, 2013.
Recruit applicants and publicize the program. Boren relies on you to publicize the scholarship opportunity on your campus to students, administrators, and faculty. We have a number of suggestions and resources available to help.
Advise students through the application process. Students on your campus may need your help to select a study abroad program and put together a competitive Boren Scholarship application.
Complete the online evaluation for each student. The online campus evaluation is crucial in helping our review panels evaluate an applicant's maturity, adaptability, and motivation.
Collect & submit supplementary materials. All Boren Scholarship supplementary materials should be in one package and must arrive at IIE by February 13, 2013.
Applications will undergo a multi-level selection process and award notifications will be released in early May.
