Applicants will be notified in March if they are selected for an interview. The Admissions Committee selects finalists based on their applications for admission and additional criteria established by the committee. In the previous year, the committee reviewed over 450 scholarship applications from both the U.S. and worldwide, ultimately inviting 15 finalists for interviews. Among these, five students were awarded the scholarship and joined the incoming class. Typically, one or two international students receive this prestigious award each year.
