Marshall Scholarship

Marshall Scholarships provide funding for graduate study in the United Kingdom. Nearly all degree programs at British universities are included.

Applicants must apply for the one-year or two-year scholarship. Third-year extensions for doctoral study are possible, but not guaranteed, for recipients of the two-year award.

Students must be endorsed by their undergraduate institutions to apply.
