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:
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.
One of the finalist this year was Indian and she was geographically located in India.
