All UTSA Freshman, Sophomores & Juniors Are Invited To A Marshall Scholarship Informational Session with BRITISH CONSUL-GENERAL ANDREW MILLAR.
The Marshall Scholarship is among the most selective postgraduate scholarships available to Americans. The award was created by the Parliament of the United Kingdom in 1953 in recognition of the United States of America’s post-World War II European Recovery Plan, also known as the Marshall Plan. Approximately 40 scholars are selected each year, and there are over 1,500 Marshall Scholar alumni.
Marshall Scholarships provide students with two fully funded years of study, with a possible third-year extension, at any university in the United Kingdom and are applicable to any field of study. In addition to pure academic pursuits, the program provides future leaders of America with insight into the “British ideals and way of life” and strengthens the “unique relationship” that exists between the U.S. and U.K.
Each year, approximately four percent of university-endorsed applicants receive the scholarship, and applicants must have a GPA of 3.7 or higher to be eligible. The Honors College offers advanced mentoring and application assistance for qualified applicants. Anyone interested in future applications to the Marshall Scholarship should attend this event. Even if you are not yet sure about applying to graduate school, you should explore your opportunities before eliminating your options!
