  • Opportunity for broadened perspectives - preference will be given to applicants whose proposed activity provides an experience much different (culturally, politically, geographically) than they can have where they live or were raised.
  • Impact of the award - while the demonstration of financial need is not a requirement, preference may be given to students who are needful of support, when other aspects of the applications are equal.
