Marshall Scholarship


The Marshall Scholarship allows study at any of nearly 100 institutions of higher learning in the United Kingdom, with the requirement that students take a degree (either a second B.A. or a higher degree). Although the award typically supports two years of study, students may petition for a third year of funding to complete a degree program. The Marshall selects up to 40 scholars each year. Application begins with an internal NU competition. You must first secure an interview with the NU British Scholarships Committee.
