Marshall Scholarship

Campus deadline: Noon, August 15, 2022

UCB recipients!

The Marshall Scholarship, one of the most competitive and prestigious awards, funds one or two years of post-bachelor study at any college or university in the United Kingdom (England, Wales, Scotland, or Northern Ireland) for up to 50 students in any field of study. The program was created by the British government in 1953 to commemorate the Marshall Plan and is intended to encourage future American leaders to be personal ambassadors to the U.K. The award covers all reasonable educational costs, a personal allowance for living expenses, and travel costs to and from the United States.

Prospective applicants must make an individual advising appointment with Alicia Hayes, the Marshall Scholarship campus representative.
