The prestigious national fellowship will allow Nathan to travel to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he will join LabLua - the founding lab of the Lua programming language - for a year of graduate work in both Lua and the Portuguese language.

"I couldn't have done it without the great resources and opportunities provided to me at UDC," Nathan said, "particularly my advisor, Dr. Jeong, and the department chair, Dr. Yu. Both were instrumental in shaping, supporting, and-most importantly-critiquing my application from start to finish. UDC has been a great place to do graduate work and I hope this award is an indicator of that reality."

Here is the general information about the Boren Fellowships.


"Boren Fellowships provide a unique funding opportunity for U.S. students to study in world regions critical to U.S. interests (including Africa, Asia, Central & Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East). The countries of Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are excluded.

The fellowship allows graduate students to add an important international and language component to their graduate studies. Boren Fellows can receive up to $24,000 for overseas study or up to $30,000 for a combination of overseas and domestic study.

Additional information on preferred geographic regions, languages, and fields of study, as well as application procedures can be found at www.borenawards.org."
