SCHC senior student and biology major Patrick McKenzie awarded the Boren Scholarship


David L. Boren Scholarships and Fellowships are sponsored by the National Security Education Program (NSEP), a major federal initiative designed to build a broader and more qualified pool of U.S. citizens with foreign language and international skills. Boren Awards provide U.S. undergraduate and graduate students with resources and encouragement to acquire language skills and experience in countries critical to the future security and stability of our nation. In exchange for funding, Boren award recipients agree to work in the federal government for a period of at least one year.

UofSC biology major senior student Patrick McKenzie has received the Boren Scholarship for 2019-2020, out of 244 awards given nationally, to study Arabic in Jordan. Patrick plans to pursue a career in immigration law in the future. Congrats Patrick!
