There may be no more unique and challenging country in Southeast Asia in which to take up studies than Vietnam. The David L. Boren Scholarships established by the federal government help fund the international educations of hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students each year. The key question is, “Is it a country of critical need to the United States security agencies?” Because Vietnam remains rooted in Communist rule, the answer is a resounding “Yes.” Students wishing to study in Vietnam and who may consider a long-term career in national security may earn up to $25,000. Eligible applicants must be academically talented, with a program that will enable them to learn many things about Vietnam and experience the language and culture from the inside out.
