|(a) Each year eligible institutions may submit scholarship
recommendations (applications) to the Board. Applications for the
12-month awards must be submitted to the Board no later than March
(1) Prioritization. Participating institutions will
assign priority numbers to their applicants, so that if all applicants
cannot receive scholarships the Board will know which applicants are
given highest priority by the nominating institutions. Within the
confines of the basic allotment formula the Board will do its best
to accommodate institutional priorities.
(2) Basic allotment. From the pool of valid applications
submitted, the Board shall select:
(A) up to 10 students per eligible country, plus
(B) 35 students from a Latin American country designated
by the United States Department of State.
(3) Reallocation of unused scholarships. In the event
any nation fails to have 10 students available and qualified for scholarships
or if the designated country fails to have 35 such students, the Board
may allocate such unused scholarships as determined appropriate, with
priority being given to students from Mexico, except that the total
of all scholarships shall not exceed 235 in a year. If an institution
notifies the Board by October 15 of a selected student's failure to
use the offered scholarship, the Board will offer the scholarships
to the first statewide alternate for that country. Awards canceled
after October 15 will be allowed to lapse.
(b) Under no circumstances shall any special consideration
be given to applicants who are related to employees of the Board.
