The scholarship is awarded to undergraduate students with limited financial means to assist them in studying abroad. The scholarship program supports international learning as an important aspect of education and will aid students in becoming more culturally aware world citizens.

The program is sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State.
