Russian Flagship Student Receives Prestigious Boren Scholarship

UW-Madison senior Madeline Rutherford is currently participating in the Russian Overseas Flagship Capstone Program in Almaty, Kazakhstan. A double major in Astrophysics and International Studies as well as a participant in the Russian Flagship Program, Rutherford’s year in Kazakhstan is partly funded by her receipt of a prestigious Boren Scholarship. David L. Boren Scholarships are given to select undergraduate and graduate students so they may study languages and cultures critical to US national security.

For more on the Boren Scholarships and the Russian Flagship Program as well as an interview with Madeline Rutherford about her participation in Flagship and plans for the future, see this post on the webpage of the UW-Madison International Division.
