Information about the Scholarship
The Marshall Scholarship provides for one or two to three years of study leading to a graduate degree or degrees from virtually any UK (England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland) university or institution of higher education. Scholars may choose to obtain degrees from one or two different institutions. The scholarship covers tuition, fees, and a stipend for living expenses.
Marshall Scholars are talented, independent, and wide-ranging in their interests, and their time as Scholars will enhance their intellectual and personal growth.
