WASHINGTON Senator Chuck Grassley met with Angela Wrage of Gladbrook while she attended a Boren Scholarship convocation in the nation's capital in June. She will use her scholarship to study Turkish at Fatih University in Istanbul for ten months. Wrage, a senior chemistry and biology major from Gladbrook, Iowa, will spend an academic year taking courses at Fatih University in Istanbul, Turkey. She is one of 161 award winners selected from a pool of 947 applicants. David L. Boren Scholarships are sponsored by the National Security Education Program (NSEP), a major federal initiative designed to build a broader and more qualified pool of U.S. citizens with foreign language and international skills. Boren awards provide U.S. undergraduate and graduate students with resources and encouragement to acquire language skills and experience in countries critical to the future security and stability of the U.S. In exchange for funding, Boren award recipients agree to work in the federal government for a period of at least one year. Angela is the daughter of Nathan and Jennifer Wrage of Gladbrook.
