What is the Marshall Scholarship?

The Marshall Scholarship supports one to three years of postgraduate study at one or two institutions in the United Kingdom in all fields.

Who is eligible to apply?

Marshall Scholarship applicants must be U.S. citizens and:

  1. Hold a first degree from a four-year college or university in the US by the time the Scholarship would begin. The degree must have been awarded no later than the April of two years prior to the application year. (So if one is applying in 2017, the first degree must be awarded between April 2015 and August 2018.)
  2. Have a minimum GPA of 3.7, with exceptions in very rare cases.
  3. Not have studied for or hold a degree from a British University.
