Luce Fellowship Reminder--no one applies? Why?

This year Puget Sound was invited to compete for the Luce Fellowship in Asia, which provides a fellowship for recent graduates:

The Luce Scholars Program has invited Puget Sound to participate in their program of international and cultural exchange. Aimed at a highly qualified group of young Americans in a variety of professional fields, it is unique among Asian-American exchange programs in placing emphasis on leaders who have had little prior experience of Asia and who might not otherwise have an opportunity during the course of their careers to come to know Asia or their Asian colleagues. The program consists of a paid internship in an East Asian or Southeast Asian country, not academic study. The basic stipend is sufficient to meet all of the scholars’ normal expenses in Asia, and all costs for travel required by the program also are covered.

The deadline is October 5, and there have been virtually no applications on campus.
I don't understand.
