Marshall Scholarships finance young Americans of high ability to study for a graduate degree in the United Kingdom. As future leaders, with a lasting understanding of British society, Marshall Scholars 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 enhances their intellectual and personal growth.
Marshall Scholarships are available as one-year or two-year programs. Applicants to the two-year program may elect to pursue a single two-year program or two separate one-year degrees.
The award covers university fees, cost of living expenses, an annual book grant, a thesis grant, research and daily travel grants, fares to and from the United States and, where applicable, a contribution towards the support of a dependent spouse.
Open only to United States citizens who (at the time they take up their Scholarship) hold a first degree from an accredited four-year college or university in the United States with a minimum GPA of 3.7. To qualify for awards tenable from October 2016, candidates must have graduated from their undergraduate college or university after April 2013. Anyone holding a British degree is not eligible to apply for the scholarship.
