The Center for Undergraduate Fellowships and Research congratulates Margaret and Isaac!

CUFR is pleased to announce that George Washington University sophomores, Margaret Kahn and Isaac Chae, have recently been named recipients of the David L. Boren Scholarship in 2014. Funded by the National Security Education Program (NSEP), Boren Scholarships provide up to $20,000 to US undergraduate students to study abroad in areas of the world that are deemed critical to US interests and are, according to the Boren site, “underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East.” Currently, Margaret and Isaac are both sophomores in the Elliott School with majors in International Affairs. In the next academic year, Margaret plans to use her Boren to help fund her study of Turkish in Istanbul whereas Isaac plans to study Korean in Seoul. In addition to the study abroad funding, Margaret and Isaac especially expect to benefit from the contacts they make throughout their career with the Boren community.
