A Unit of Undergraduate Studies

Marshall Scholarship

Marshall Scholarships are awarded to up to 40 Americans to fund two years (sometimes one year) of graduate study in any field at any university in the United Kingdom. Scholars typically earn one two-year degree or two one-year degrees; extension for a third year is possible. Selection criteria include an exceptional academic record, leadership, and potential to serve as a citizen ambassador to the UK. Scholarship pays for tuition, living expenses, and travel costs. KU students apply for the nomination in spring of their junior year or up to one year after graduation. Contact Dr. Anne Wallen (annewallen@ku.edu) for more details.

Campus deadline for KU nomination: late April. National deadline for KU nominees: late September. For more information see the website of the Marshall Scholarship.
