The Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) Program is a summer study abroad opportunity for American college and university students to learn languages essential to America’s engagement with the world. Click the link below for more information.
The Boren Fellowship provides up to $24,000 to U.S. graduate students from any field to study/conduct research abroad for 12 weeks to 12 months.
Boren Fellowships focus on geographic areas, languages deemed critical to U.S. national security. Applicants identify how their study/research abroad program, as well as their future academic and career goals, will contribute to U.S. national security. National security is broadly defined to include not only the traditional concerns of protecting American well-being, but also areas such as sustainable development, environmental degradation, global disease and hunger, population growth and migration, and economic competitiveness.
Recipients of the fellowship agree to work in the federal government and serve national security interests for a time equal to the duration of assistance provided under the program, but in no case less than one year. Click the link for more information.
This program provides grants to colleges and universities to fund individual doctoral students to conduct research in other countries in modern foreign languages and area studies for periods of 6 to 12 months. Click the link for more information.
The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for U.S. graduating seniors, graduate students, young professionals and artists to study abroad for one academic year. Click the link for more information.

The Graduate School will be hosting its fall Dissertation Boot Camp on Friday, October 18th, from 8am-5pm in the Library.
As graduate students, we know you are busy and have obligations that often prevent you from focusing on the completion of your thesis/dissertation. We have developed the Boot Camp to help with that!
The camp has no structured instruction – it is dedicated, focused time for writing. Students have also used this time for exam preparation.
Whatever you need to accomplish, we will provide you with meals, snacks and an uninterrupted place to focus.
The camp is limited in space. Please sign up early and specify any dietary restrictions. https://www.uakron.edu/gradsch/current-students/dissertation-boot-camp
We hope to see you there!
