Do Indians ( Internationals) get Robertson Scholarship at UNC/Duke?

I noticed that there are almost no international students getting a Robertson Scholarship at Duke/UNC, except from Aus/Nz/England. Do they really don't accept from elsewhere?

    This is from a google search asking if Robertson was available to international students:
    The Robertson Scholars Leadership Program welcomes applications from all students regardless of nationality or citizenship. The application deadline for all international applicants, with the exception of the African Leadership Academy, is November 15th.

    I know that there are students from Nigeria, Senegal & Kenya in the current crop, and that the % of international students is similar to the % in the student body overall- ~10%.

    You can check online the student profiles of current Robertsons- by odds you would expect some Indians and Chinese scholars (family names from those regions are certainly present, but they could be US resident/citizens), but you wouldn't expect very many. But no, there is no policy excluding Indians.
