Marshall Scholarship

The Marshall Scholarship supports young Americans of high ability to study for a graduate degree in the United Kingdom. A Marshall Scholarship is tenable for two academic years (i.e. 22 months), but may be extended to a third year by the Commission on a limited basis. Candidates are invited to indicate two preferred universities, but interest in studying at universities other than Oxford and Cambridge is particularly welcomed.

Only students that completed and moved forward from the Pre-Application are eligible.

A Marshall candidate must be endorsed by an institution at which he or she has completed two years of full-time undergraduate or postgraduate study. The 2021 Application will be available in late spring 2020. In the meantime, we require students to begin a drafted application to begin working on these questions for committee review.
