    - The applicant is studying or interning abroad for at least four weeks (28 days) in one country - or two weeks (14 days) for current community college students - and no more than one academic year. Programs going to more than one country are eligible if the student will be in one country for at least four consecutive weeks

    - The applicant is studying or interning abroad in any country except Cuba or a country on the U.S. Department of State's current Travel Warning list.

    - Students with high financial need
    - Students from diverse ethnic backgrounds
    - Students going to non-traditional countries, especially those outside Western Europe, Australia, and New Zealand
    - Students from a diverse range of institutions, including community colleges, HBCU's, tribal colleges, Hispanic-serving institutions and other minority-serving institutions
    - Students with disabilities
    - First generation college students
    - Students in underrepresented fields of study, especially the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics)
