Eligibility Requirements
- Applicants must be entering their first year of graduate school in the upcoming fall semester and provide evidence of acceptance as a full-time student at an accredited U.S. institution at the time of the award

- Applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 3.25 on a 4.0-point scale
