UGA ranked 2nd in the nation for total number of Boren Awards

University of Georgia

The University of Georgia ranked second in the nation for a global engagement scholarship intended for aspiring federal government workers.

UGA ranked second for the total number of Boren Awards in 2024. Those awards include both Boren Scholars and Boren Fellows. This spring, a record 11 UGA undergrad students are selected as Boren Scholars.

This is the fourth year UGA has been named a top-performing institution for Boren Scholarships.

The fellows and scholarship awards are intended to assist students financially in learning international language skills by studying abroad in world regions critical to U.S. relations. In return, award recipients commit to working for the federal government for at least one year following graduation.

Many recipients are a part of UGA’s Portuguese Flagship program, while others are a part of the Russian Flagship program or majoring or minoring in international affairs.
