We are pleased to announce that the National Security Education Program African Languages Initiative is now open to both undergraduate and graduate students.  This initiative will offer Boren Scholarship and Fellowship applicants the opportunity to apply for additional language training in Bambara, Swahili, Yoruba, or Zulu. Preference will be given to applicants with prior exposure to the respective languages, but prior training is not required.

 Specifically, this pilot initiative will provide the opportunity for Scholars and Fellows to enhance their Boren Awards with additional language study in the United States and overseas.  Beginning summer 2011, Boren awardees will have the opportunity to enroll in domestic university-based summer intensive courses in the targeted languages.  The summer U.S. programs will be followed by intensive language and culture study programs during the fall semester at specific language centers in Mali (Bambara), Tanzania (Swahili), Nigeria (Yoruba), and South Africa (Zulu). The program administrator for this initiative is the American Councils for International Education.

 Please visit www.borenawards.org for more information about the options available to graduate and undergraduate students.   If you are interested in receiving additional program information, please contact boren@iie.org, and we will send details as they become available in the coming weeks.

Robyn Van Wingerden, Program Manager for the Boren Awards at the Institute of International Education will be on campus in the Cook Honors College on Thursday, November 18th, 2010 at 12:30 PM in the Whitmyre Great Hall. She will present information about Boren Scholarships and Fellowships to all interested undergraduate and graduate students in the Whitmyre Great Hall.

The Institute for International Education offers Boren Awards for the study of languages critical to US national security interests abroad. If you want to learn a less commonly taught language, do research in a country commonly underrepresented in study abroad and pursue a career in government service, then a Boren Award is for you.

Boren Scholarships allow U.S. undergraduate students to study less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. interests but underrepresented in study abroad.

Boren Fellowships encourage U.S. graduate students to add an important international and language component to their education, and can include language study, research, and academic internships. You must be a U.S. citizen to apply.

Go to www.borenawards.org to learn more.

Please contact me at 357-7573 or kevinb@iup.edu for more information.

Unite For Sight's Global Impact Corps is an immersive global health experience for students and for professionals.  All volunteers participating in Unite For Sight's international programs are Global Impact Fellows. 

What do Global Impact Fellows do?  Global Impact Fellows support and learn from the partner clinics' talented medical professionals who are social entrepreneurs addressing complex global health issues. Through hands-on, structured training, Global Impact Fellows gain a comprehensive understanding about best practices in global health and social entrepreneurship.  Global Impact Fellows gain skills and are nurtured to become new leaders in global health, and they receive a Certificate in Global Health & Program Delivery.  

Global Impact Fellows participate daily with local doctors to eliminate patient barriers to care and to facilitate comprehensive year-round eye care for patients living in extreme poverty.  They assist with patient education, visual acuity screening, patient intake, distributing the glasses and medication prescribed by the local eye doctors, and other important support tasks.  They also have the opportunity to observe the surgeries provided by the local doctors. Additionally, Global Impact Fellows may participate in the Global Impact Lab, an optional program for those interested in pursuing global health research. For example, current Global Impact Fellows are pursuing research studies about medication management, the use of visual resources for patient education, traditional medicine practices, and patient barriers to care.
