Marshall Scholarship

  • The purpose of the Marshall Scholarship is to finance young Americans of high ability to study for a degree in the United Kingdom in a system of higher education recognized for its excellence. The Marshall Scholarships serve as a way to commemorate the humane ideals of the Marshall plan conceived by General George C. Marshall. They express the continuing gratitude of the British people to their American counterparts. The scholarships have five main purposes: (1) to enable intellectually distinguished Americans, their country’s future leaders, to study in the U.K.; (2) to help scholars gain an understanding and appreciation of contemporary Britain; (3) to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in science, technology, and humanities and social sciences and the creative arts at Britain’s center of academic excellence; (4) to motivate scholars to act as ambassadors from the U.S. to the U.K. and vice versa throughout their lives thus strengthening British American understanding; and (5) to promote the personal and academic fulfillment of each scholar.
