Academic Fellowships

The Marshall Scholarship

The Marshall Scholarship Program offers graduate school scholarships for US students in the UK in any field of study. Scholarships are available for one or two years of study. The scholarship strengthens US-UK relations on a personal and national level and students receive the opportunity to have direct engagement with the top British academic programs. Marshall Scholars are chosen for their leadership and ambassadorial potential, as well as academic ability.
