Graduate Fellowship Information for US Graduate Students: 
NSEP is required by law to focus on geographical areas, languages, and 
fields of study deemed critical to U.S. national security. For the 
2001 competition, NSEP is focusing on particular countries in the 
following regions: Africa; East Asia and the Pacific; Eastern Europe, 
 
former Russian states, and Turkey; Latin America and the Caribbean; 
 
the Near East; and South Asia. 
 
Subject: National Security Education Program Grad International Fellowships 
Information as of November 19, 2001 
********************************************************************** 
 
 
SCOPE: The National Security Education Program (NSEP) Boren Graduate 
Fellowships enable U.S. graduate students to pursue specialization in 
area and language study, or to add an important international 
dimension to their education. 
 
DEADLINE: The deadline has been updated to February 1 from the 
previous deadline of February 15. 
 
FUNDS: NSEP Fellowship awards are made for a minimum of one and a 
maximum of six academic semesters (two years). Support for language or 
area studies coursework at the applicant's home university is $2,000 
per semester. Overseas study offers up to $10,000 per semester for up 
to two semesters. The maximum level of support for a combined overseas 
and domestic program is $28,000. 
 
ELIGIBILITY: Applicants must be U.S. citizens enrolled in or applying 
to graduate programs in accredited colleges and universities located 
in the U.S. All applications must include study of a modern language 
other than English. Award recipients incur a requirement to work for 
an agency or office of the federal government involved in national 
security affairs or in the field of higher education in an area of 
study for which the fellowship was awarded, in that order of 
precedence. 
 
AREAS: NSEP Fellowships support students studying languages, cultures, 
 
and world regions that are critical to U.S. national security, but 
which are less frequently studied by U.S. graduate students, i.e., 
areas of the world other than Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and 
New Zealand. Fellowships are intended to support graduate students who 
will pursue the study of languages and cultures deemed critical to 
U.S. national security, and who would consider the possibility of 
federal government service. Students already enrolled in 
internationally oriented programs are encouraged to intensify their 
study of areas, languages, and cultures through overseas study and 
limited domestic tuition support. Applicants design their own programs 
and may combine domestic language and cultural study with study 
overseas.
