Marshall Scholarships

Marshall Scholarships finance young Americans of high ability to study for a degree in the United Kingdom.

At least forty scholars are selected each year to study at graduate or, occasionally, undergraduate level at an UK institution in any field of study. Each scholarship is held for two years.

Single Parent Scholarships

The Custody X Change Giving Program awards three scholarships each year to single parents from the USA who are studying in the UK.

This programme was set up to help single parents wanting to study not just in the United States, but around the world.
