Indonesian Flagship Language Initiative

Boren recipients receive intensive language instruction to reach professional proficiency in the Indonesian language.

The Indonesian Flagship Language Initiative offers Boren fellows the opportunity for intensive language study of Bahasa Indonesian. The program is appropriate for applicants with no language proficiency as well as those with intermediate and advanced proficiency in Indonesian.

There is both a domestic and an overseas component to the program. Applicants must plan to enroll in the official domestic summer program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in preparation for overseas study. The overseas program occurs in the fall at the State University of Malang in Indonesia.

Awardees are also encouraged to stay overseas through the spring semester, and must identify a program on their own. Options must include language study, but may also include additional coursework, academic internships, or research.
