Marshall Scholarships finance young Americans of high ability to study for a graduate degree in the United Kingdom. Up to 40 scholars are selected each year to study at the graduate level at a UK institution in any field of study.  The scholarship allows the scholars, who are the potential leaders, opinion-formers, and decision-makers in their own countries, to gain an understanding and appreciation of British values and the British way of life. It also establishes long-lasting ties between the peoples of Britain and the United States. Each scholarship is held for one to two years. Award covers university fees, tuition, books, a thesis grant, research, and daily travel, plus fares to and from the United States. Students who wish to apply should contact UO’s Marshall Scholarship advisor, Dr. Josh Snodgrass (dsinfo@uoregon.edu). More information about the scholarship can be found on UO’s Distinguished Scholarships website.
