Marshall Scholarship


Deadline: 2014-08-27 (UVa Internal)

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 the graduate level at an UK institution in any field of study. Each scholarship is held for one or two years.


Open only to United States citizens who (at the time they take up their Scholarship) hold a first degree from an accredited four-year college or university in the United States with a minimum GPA of 3.7. To be eligible for a 2014 Marshall Scholarship, candidates must have graduated from their first undergraduate college or university after April 2011.


A Marshall Scholarship is tenable for one or two academic years. Two-year scholarships may be extended by the Commission, though not beyond the end of a third academic year.


Transportation to the United Kingdom, living stipend, tuition and fees.

Application Process

Candidates must be nominated by the Center for Undergraduate Excellence. Students interested in applying for the Marshall Scholarship should set up an appointment at the Center to discuss the application process. The U.Va. deadline is noon on August 27, 2014. Interested applicants should e-mail the following materials to Mary Esselman Roberts at by July 15: (1) a personal statement, 2) description of proposed academic program, (3) list of references, (4) unofficial transcript, and (5) CV or resume. Students who meet the preliminary deadline of July 15 for the Marshall Scholarship will receive communications from the Center about submitting their applications as well as advice on personal statements and other aspects of the application. Students who know they will be unable to meet this deadline should contact the Center in advance to make alternate arrangements. Applicants who miss the preliminary deadline and do not make alternate arrangements may still apply for the scholarship, but they will not necessarily receive feedback on their draft applications and they risk missing important communications.
