Fly America Act

All Boren Scholarship recipients must comply with the Fly America Act, which requires that all travel supported by federal government funds be on a U.S. flag carrier departing from the United States to the foreign destination and returning to the United States. The only circumstance in which an award recipient can use a foreign flag carrier is when an origin or interchange point is not served by a U.S. flag carrier. An award recipient can use the foreign-flag carrier to the nearest interchange to connect with a U.S. carrier. All scholarship recipients will be required to send a photocopy of the passenger receipt page(s) to their airline tickets to show compliance with the Fly America Act. Boren Scholars who are funding their airfare through other means do not need to comply with the Fly America Act.
