I’m excited to share that Michael Saffle from the Boren Awards will be visiting the UW on October 18th to talk with students about Boren funding for study abroad. He’s offering an information session in Mary Gates Hall 171 at 4pm. Below I’ve listed a few highlights of the Boren Funding and I’ve included photo of a few of our 2016 undergraduate Boren Scholars.
