Marshall Scholarship Announcement
The UCLA Scholarship Research Center and the Undergraduate Research Center for Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences are now coordinating the nomination of UCLA students for most major national scholarships and fellowships, including the prestigious Marshall Scholarship.
The Marshall Scholarship funds graduate study at any college or university in the United Kingdom (England, Wales, Scotland, or Northern Ireland). The program is intended to encourage future American leaders to be personal ambassadors to the U.K. Marshall Scholars may pursue either a second bachelor’s or a graduate degree. The award covers university fees, cost of living expenses, annual book grant, thesis grant, research and daily travel grants, and fares to and from the U.K. Up to 40 scholars are selected each year to study at graduate level at a U.K. institution in any field of study.
To be eligible for a Marshall Scholarship, a student must:
- Show academic excellence (generally a GPA of 3.7 or above).
- Have strong ambassadorial potential.
- Show great promise of leadership.
The UCLA campus deadline for the Marshall Scholarship is: June 30, 2016
