Scholarship Spotlight

The Marshall Scholarship

http://www.marshallscholarship.org

Marshall Scholarships finance young Americans of high ability to study for a degree in the United Kingdom. Up to forty Scholars are selected each year to study at graduate level at an UK institution in any field of study.
As future leaders, with a lasting understanding of British society, Marshall Scholars strengthen the enduring relationship between the British and American peoples, their governments and their institutions. Marshall Scholars are talented, independent and wide-ranging, and their time as Scholars enhances their intellectual and personal growth. Their direct engagement with Britain through its best academic programmes contributes to their ultimate personal success.

Welcome to Marywood's Honors & Fellowships Website!

You will find information about the opportunities we have available to ambitious, academically gifted students.  The Honors Program offers specialized courses and independent study that will prepare you for graduate study and to apply for major scholarships and fellowships such as the Marshall or the Fulbright.  We provided faculty advising for these scholarships, as well as a number of others that you can find on the Scholarships & Fellowships page.  Marywood also offers funding for undergraduate student research and travel.  Students have participated in ongoing research projects on campus, and presented at conferences and conventions from Boston to Seattle, and even Edinburgh, Scotland.  Visit the Undergraduate Research page to find out how you can get involved.
