NSEP Boren Awards

Slava Dade and Hannah McCandless
The Center for Languages, Literatures and Cultures announced today that Vyacheslav (Slava) Dade and Hannah McCandless are recipients of the 2014-2015 NSEP Boren Undergraduate Study Abroad Award.

Slava Dade will study Mandarin Chinese at the Harbin Institute of Technology and Hannah McCandless will be studying Swahili with the University of Minnesota studies for international development program in Nairobi, Kenya.

Boren Scholarships are funded by the National Security Education Program (NSEP), which focuses on geographic areas, languages, and fields of study deemed critical to U.S. national security. NSEP draws on a broad definition of national security, recognizing that the scope of national security has expanded to include not only the traditional concerns of protecting and promoting American well-being, but also the challenges of global society, including sustainable development, environmental degradation, global disease and hunger, population growth and migration, and economic competitiveness.
