Eligibility: Applicants must be U.S. citizens, hold a bachelor's degree by the time study in the UK would begin, and have at least a 3.7/4.0 GPA. Candidates must apply 2 years or less after completion of their bachelor's degree.

In addition, it is recommended that applicants have extensive university and community involvement, demonstrated leadership and scholarship, and have a good rationale for their study in the UK.

Description: Marshall Scholarships finance young Americans of high ability to study for a degree in the United Kingdom. The Scholarships were founded by an Act of Parliament in 1953 and commemorate the humane ideals of the European Recovery Programme (The Marshall Plan). They are funded by the British government.

Up to 40 Marshall Scholarships are awarded each year. They are tenable at any British university and cover two years of study in any discipline, at either the undergraduate or graduate level, leading to the award of a British university degree. Candidates are invited to indicate two preferred universities, although the Marshall Commission reserves the right to decide on the final placement. Expressions of interest in studying at universities other than Oxford or Cambridge are particularly welcome.

The award generally pays university fees, cost of living expenses, annual book grant, 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.

Send applications to: all candidates must be nominated by UIC. Please see Important Notes section above.
