Special Academic Opportunities

British Marshall Scholarship

Every year the British Marshall Scholarship Program awards scholarships to American students wishing to undertake graduate study in the United Kingdom.  The British government views the scholarship as an invaluable means of increasing Anglo-American understanding following the path of the late General Marshall.  Selectors look for distinction of intellect and character as evidenced both by scholastic attainments and by other activities and achievements.  An applicant’s ability to play an active role in British culture is additionally emphasized.


Up to 40 Marshall Scholarships will be offered with tenure of two academic years for the study of any subject leading to the award of a British University degree.  The commission to include a third year may extend the Scholarship.  The total value varies, covering residence and cost of living, tuition fees, a grant for books, daily travel expenses, travel fares to and from England, to an average of about 16,500 pounds (British sterling) per year.  (U.S. currency is dependent upon the current exchange rate).


Student must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen under 26 years of age.
  • Have obtained a first degree from an accredited 4-year college or university in the U.S.
  • Have a minimum GPA of 3.7 for courses after the freshman year and present a definite academic program designed to further individual intellectual interests and objectives and to make a significant contribution to society in the future
