AMOUNT: ALL COSTS OF A GRADUATE DEGREE In the UK

Marshall Scholarships finance young Americans of high ability to study for a graduate degree in the United Kingdom.

Up to forty Scholars are selected each year to study at graduate level at an UK institution in any field of study.

As future leaders, with a lasting understanding of British society, Marshall Scholars strengthen the enduring relationship between the British and American peoples, their governments and their institutions. Marshall Scholars are talented, independent and wide-ranging, and their time as Scholars enhances their intellectual and personal growth.
