* Subject to change. The Foundation reserves the right to relocate smaller states where appropriate. If, for example, all Hawaii Finalists attend school on the east coast, the Foundation may arrange to interview these Finalists at an east coast location. These changes will not be made without consulting those students impacted. Finalists from American Samoa, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam and the US Virgin Islands will also be scheduled in consultation between the Finalists and the Foundation.
