In 1953 the Marshall Scholarship program was established by an act of the British Parliament. Funded by the British government, the program is a national gesture of thanks to the American people for aid received under the Marshall Plan, the U.S.-financed program that led to the reconstruction of Europe after World War II. Since the inception of the program, more than 1,800 Americans have studied in the United Kingdom as Marshall Scholars.
The scholarships provide funds for two years of study at a British university, travel, living expenses, and a book allowance. Applicants must earn a degree at an American college or university with a minimum of a 3.7 grade point average. This year 40 Marshall Scholarships were given out. Seventeen of this year’s recipients are women.
