Most awards will be made only to citizens of the United States or those holding a permanent residence status.  However, international students are eligible for the General Motors awards.
 
The Hepler Award may also be given to eligible Computer Science Graduate students, full-time or part-time (making regular progress toward a degree), who are majoring in Artificial Intelligence, or Human Factors Engineering.
