About the Marshall Scholarship

Founded by Act of Parliament in 1953, the Marshall Scholarships commemorate the “human ideals” of the European Recovery Programme (Marshall Plan).  Recipients are awarded two years of graduate study in any British university and in any discipline leading to a British university degree. The total award value will vary according to circumstances (selected university, residence, etc.), but will include tuition fees, personal allowance, grant for books, and travel expenses.  Up to forty Marshall scholarships are awarded each year.  Candidates choose the region through which they apply.
