cultural study with overseas study. Study of a foreign language appropriate
to the identified country or region must be an integral part of each
application proposal. (Note: Boren Fellowship support may not be used for
study of French or Spanish unless such language instruction is at an
advanced level or combined with the study of science, engineering, or
business.)
