From the Marshall website:

Marshall Scholarships finance young Americans of high ability to study for a 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. Their direct engagement with Britain through its best academic programmes contributes to their ultimate personal success.

The Two Year Marshall Scholarship is tenable for two academic years (ie 22 months), and it can be made up of two one-year programs at participating higher education institutions in the United Kingdom.

Much can be learned about the Marshall by reading the bios of past years’ scholars.

NYU’s Endorsement Process

Any student or recent graduate wishing to apply for the Marshall Scholarship must apply for and be accepted into the Global Awards Application Development Cohort (ADC).  The ADC typically involves weekly meetings throughout the summer.  In these sessions, students receive training and support on narrative development, understanding international graduate programs, essay writing, and more. Completing the ADC is a prerequisite for receiving NYU’s endorsement.  The preliminary application is typically released in early spring semester with a deadline in late March/early April.

Late applicants will be considered on a case-by-case basis.  If you have missed the preliminary deadline and would like to be considered for the Marshall Scholarship, contact the Director of Global Awards as soon as possible: Kurt Davies (
