The Queen Mary Marshall Scholarship is made available each year for one US citizen wishing to pursue postgraduate study at QMUL.
Jointly funded by QMUL and the Marshall Aid Commemoration Commission, this award supports up to two years of study in any subject at either Masters or Doctoral level (with a possibility of extension to a third year for doctoral studies).
Founded by a 1953 Act of Parliament, and named in honour of US Secretary of State George C Marshall, the Marshall Scholarships commemorate the humane ideals of the Marshall Plan and express the continuing gratitude of the British people to their American counterparts. Marshall Scholarships support around forty young Americans in their studies each year. 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
Meet our scholar
Our current QMUL Marshall Scholar is Moriah Mulroe, who joined us in September to start an MSc in the Integrated Management of Freshwater Environments, talks to us about her experiences at Queen Mary so far: I was drawn to Queen Mary because I saw this master’s course as an opportunity to expand my knowledge base and gain hands-on experience in the field. I greatly enjoy being a student at Queen Mary and have found that the faculty are dedicated lecturers who focus on teaching engaging material. I especially appreciate the practical nature of our studies and getting the opportunity to learn from my classmates. I am very grateful to have received the Marshall Scholarship to cover my course costs at QMUL.
The QMUL Marshall Scholarship offers support for candidates wishing to pursue up to two years of postgraduate study, on any Masters or PhD programme across the University. A third year of funding may be available for students engaged in doctoral degrees.
The QMUL Marshall Scholarship covers full overseas tuitions fees, costs for any compulsory fieldwork, and provides a generous stipend to meet living costs throughout the duration of your course.
The award is open to US citizens.
