To find more about its selection criteria, kindly get in touch with the Embassy or Commission in your nation.

The Institute of International Education (IIE) office in the United States must receive nominations from embassies and commissions by October 1. Each country has a different date for applicants to submit their applications to the Embassy or Commission.
