Marshall Scholarship

Marshall Scholarships finance up to fifty Scholars each year to study at the graduate level at an UK institution in any field of study. Marshall Scholars strengthen the continuing relationship between the British and American people, their governments, and their institutions. Marshall Scholars are talented, independent and wide-ranging, and their time as Scholars enhances their intellectual and personal growth. Their direct engagement with Britain through its best academic programs contributes to their ultimate personal success.
