The African Flagship Languages Initiative (AFLI) offers Boren Scholarship applicants the opportunity for intensive language study through domestic (summer) and overseas (fall) language programs in Akan/Twi, French, Portuguese, Swahili, Wolof, or Zulu.
- AFLI students participate in a full-time domestic summer program at the University of Florida. The program is funded through the Boren Scholarship.
- For French, Portuguese, or Swahili, AFLI students must participate in fall programs administered by American Councils for International Education. Programs are in Senegal (French), Mozambique (Portuguese), and Tanzania (Swahili). These programs are full-time language and culture programs. For students studying Swahili, there is also the option to participate in an official spring internship, arranged by the AFLI program.
- All applicants are encouraged to request funding to stay overseas after the fall program is complete. With the exception of the Swahili internship, during that time, students participate in a study abroad programs that they identify on their own and note in the Boren application. These programs must include language study, but may also include additional coursework, academic internships and/or research.

For students completing a study abroad program in Europe, traveling to new and exciting destinations is all part of the experience. However, figuring out how to get to smaller towns and cities with no major airport connections can be a complicated process. Which is why we are determined to help students find the best ways to get around!
GoEuro would like students to experience the best that Europe has to offer their own way, no matter what mode of transport they prefer. To allow students the chance to explore and travel the continent, GoEuro is offering this great European scholarship to financially assist international students (U.S. students are international to them) with their studies.
Entries for applications will be accepted until Tuesday, 31 January 2017. Applications received outside this time period will not be considered. Scholarship winners will be announced on Monday, 6 February 2017.
