“Honors enrichment classes help to form great relationships with professors. You sit down together as a team and design independent coursework pertaining to your own interest in that area of study. In the sometimes hectic, high-speed world of college, this type of independent work can be a once in a college career, if not lifetime, experience.”

—Emily Talago
Class of 2009

Scholarship Spotlight

The Marshall Scholarship


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.
