Marshall Scholarship

The National Scholarship Program is now accepting pre-applications for Marshall Scholarships which support international graduate level study at U.K. institutions.  

The priority pre-application deadline to be considered for a nomination to compete for a Marshall Scholarship is April 13th.

The Marshall opportunities, institution options and scholarship length, can be explored on the Marshall Scholarship website.

The official deadline to submit Marshall Scholarship pre-applications is June 16. After June 16, the National Scholarship Program will only review Marshall pre-applications from students who can demonstrate significant knowledge about the scholarship, and their proposed U.K. institution and program of study.

If you have any questions after thoroughly exploring the opportunities, please email Dr. Maureen Harke at
