Marshall Scholarships finance young Americans of high ability to study for a degree in the United Kingdom. Up to fifty Scholars are selected each year to study at graduate level at an UK institution in any field of study.
The Warwick Marshall Scholarship is awarded to one US citizen annually to undertake a postgraduate taught or research degree at the University of Warwick, for up to two years (with a possibility of a third year for doctoral studies).
The award consists of University fees at the full overseas rate, cost of living expenses, annual book grant, thesis grant, research and daily travel grants, fares to and from the United States and, where applicable, a contribution towards the support of a dependent spouse.
To be eligible for a 2022 Marshall Scholarship, candidates must:
- Be citizens of the United States of America (at the time they apply for a scholarship);
- (By the time they take up their scholarship ie September 2022) hold their first undergraduate degree from an accredited four-year college or university in the United States;
- Have obtained a grade point average of not less than 3.7 on their undergraduate degree at the time of application. We do not accept rounded GPA's.
- Have graduated from their first undergraduate college or university after April 2019.
- Not have studied for, or hold a degree or degree-equivalent qualification from a British University or GCSE or A Levels taken at school in the UK.
Candidates should apply directly to the Marshall Commission via their online form. If selected, the Commission endeavours to secure a place at the first choice university and course. However, the decision to accept the scholar ultimately remains with the University.
