The Marshall Scholarship for US citizens to study in the UK 2024-2025

Are you a young American of high ability looking to study for a graduate degree in the United Kingdom? Look no further than the Marshall Aid Commemoration Commission Masters Degree Scholarship! Every year, up to 50 young Americans are selected to study for a graduate degree at any UK university in any field of study. The Marshall Scholarship Program aims to enable intellectually distinguished young Americans, who are the future leaders of their country, to study in the UK.


The scholarship covers university fees, cost of living expenses, an 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. The Two-year Marshall Scholarship is tenable for 2 academic years (i.e. 22 months) but may be extended by the Commission, though not beyond the end of a third academic year. Third-year extensions are granted by the Commission on a limited basis, for strong academic reasons, subject to the availability of funds. The One Year Marshall Scholarship is tenable for 1 academic year (i.e. 12 months) and cannot be extended.


To be eligible for this scholarship, you must be a United States citizen who (at the time they take up their Scholarship) holds a first degree from an accredited four-year college or university in the United States with a minimum GPA of 3.7. To qualify for awards tenable from October 2024, candidates must have graduated from their undergraduate college or university after April 2021. Persons already studying for or holding a British degree or degree-equivalent qualification are not eligible to apply for a Marshall Scholarship.

Applications are made in one of eight regions in the United States. Candidates may apply in one region only, either that in which they have their permanent home address or ordinary place of residence/employment, or that in which they are studying. The application closing date is specific to each regional centre, but it generally falls between late September and early October of the year preceding tenure. The deadlines for the 2024 Marshall Competition are September 26, 2023, for applicants and recommenders at 5:00 pm in the time zone where your university is located; September 28, 2023, for endorsement and submission by a US Institution at 5:00 pm in the time zone where your university is located.
