“Small classes allowed for more individual attention from professors and, even more importantly, more open discussion amongst the class. We all felt comfortable voicing our thoughts and ideas and testing out theories. Also, the added rigor in honors courses allows participants to delve deeper into the given area of study than in traditional courses.”

—Lauren Tyrrell, English

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.
