Top-Countries & Languages

The map and list below show the top countries and languages studied by Boren Awards recipients in 2019. As with the top-performing institutions above, these statistics are based on initial selections of the national nominating panel. Please note that the statistics below do not show the likelihood of receiving an award for a particular country or language. Countries and languages included in the Regional Language Initiatives received a higher proportion of awards to applications. Regions with countries and languages preferred by the Boren Awards receive awards in roughly the same proportion as applications to those regions. Non-preferred countries and languages are much rarer, and are considered on an applicant-by-applicant basis.
