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 2019, candidates must have graduated from their undergraduate college or university after April 2016.  Anyone holding a British degree is not eligible to apply for the scholarship.

Selection Criteria

In reviewing applications, the selectors will look for candidates who have the potential to excel as scholars, as leaders and as contributors to improved UK-US understanding. Assessment will be based on academic merit, leadership potential and ambassadorial potential.  A total of 40 Scholars are selected each year.

Application Procedure

Interested students should use this form to request an internal application. Those who are nominated by the Fellowships and Awards Committee are required to complete the online application on the Marshall website.   Contact Michelle Johnson with any questions.
