Marshall Scholarship

 

Description

Founded by a 1953 Act of Parliament, and named in honor of US Secretary of State George C. Marshall, the Scholarships commemorate the humane ideals of the Marshall Plan and they express the continuing gratitude of the British people to their American counterparts. As future leaders, with a lasting understanding of British society, Marshall Scholars will strengthen the enduring relationship between the British and American peoples, their governments and their institutions. Marshall Scholars are talented, independent and wide-ranging, and their time as Scholars will enhance their intellectual and personal growth. Their direct engagement with Britain though its best academic programs will contribute to their ultimate personal success. Marshall Scholarships are available for graduate study in most universities in the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland). Up to forty Marshall Scholarships will be awarded annually. Traditional scholarships fund two years of study. Eight of the awards will be for one year only. One year applicants must have a clear post-scholarship plan that demonstrates why spending only one year in the UK would be beneficial to the candidate. Desired qualities are demonstrated social concern and evidence that a candidate will be a leader both within his or her profession and within the broader community.
