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. Applicants should
identify how their study abroad program, as well as their future
academic and career goals, will contribute to U.S. national security,
broadly defined. 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.
