Marshall Scholarships ordinarily provide for two years of post-baccalaureate study at any participating university in the United Kingdom, with the possibility of a third year for students continuing for a doctorate. In special circumstances, students may apply for a one-year scholarship only. There are few restrictions as to field of study, but applicants must be academically prepared to undertake their proposed course.
There are three main criteria for selection:
- academic merit (a GPA of 3.7 or better is required),
- leadership potential, and
- ambassadorial potential.
Applicants must be citizens of the U.S. and either be graduating seniors or alumni who have graduated within the past two years.
