  • Collaboration and partnerships with colleges and universities outside the United States are permitted (and up to 40% of the grant can be contracted to an international partner), but only U.S. institutions are eligible to apply.
  • Applicants (both student team members and faculty advisors) must be citizens of the United States or its territories, or be lawfully admitted to the United States.
