2019-2020 Boren Applicants

Recommended Posts

I'll be applying! Have my sights set on Tanzania to study Swahili and the intersection of climate change and the refugee crisis. 

Any thoughts on the African Flagship Language Initiative? Would love to speak to anyone who has done that program.

I am applying as well! Does anyone know how to go about choosing a host institution? Do they have specific ones they endorse or is it a free for all? For reference I am applying to Jordan for Arabic.

Hello! I'm a  2018 AFLI Senegal alumni. 
I stumbled across this thread and thought that you all might benefit from this spreadsheet past applicants had put together.

Someone shared it in the thread last year and I didn't want the info to go to waste. It had been deleted but I managed to save it to my drive...feel free to edit and update information as you please!

Best of luck on your applications and if anyone has any questions about AFLI or Senegal specifically, I would be happy to answer the best I can!
