Each year the National Science Foundation awards approximately 1,000 three-year Graduate Fellowships. NSF Fellows are expected to contribute significantly to research, teaching and industrial applications in science, mathematics and engineering.
You do not have to be accepted to a graduate program to apply and being awarded an NSF Fellowship can enhance your graduate school applications. If you have previously been awarded an NSF REU and have plans for graduate school, please consider applying.
Applications are welcomed from students in the sciences and women, minorities, and persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be citizens of the U.S. or permanent residents.
Fellowships are awarded for graduate study leading to research-based master’s or doctoral degrees in the fields of science (natural, physical and social), mathematics and engineering. Awards are also made for work toward a research-based PhD in science education. Practice-oriented programs are not eligible for support. Research with disease-related goals is also not eligible for support.
The British Marshall Scholarships were founded by an Act of British Parliament in 1953 and commemorate the humane ideals of the European Recovery Program (Marshall Plan). These scholarships are awarded to young Americans of high ability to study for a degree in the United Kingdom.
The objectives of the program are to express the gratitude of the British people to the American people for the Marshall Plan, to bring intellectually distinguished young Americans who will become America’s leaders, opinion-formers and decision-makers to study in the United Kingdom, to enable them to gain an understanding and appreciation of British life, social and academic value, aiding the establishment of ties between the United Kingdom and the United States.
Each year up to forty British Marshall Scholarships are awarded, which are tenable at any British University and cover one to three years of study in any discipline, at the graduate level leading to the award of a British University degree. Candidates are invited to indicate two preferred universities (although the Marshall Commission reserves the right of final placement).
The total award covers residence and cost of living expenses, tuition fees, a grant for books and some travel money.
Qualified candidates must be citizens of the United States and not have reached their 26th birthday by October 1, the year of application. By the time they take the scholarships, the applicants must hold a first degree at an accredited 4 year college or university and have obtained a GPA of not less than 3.7.
Prospective applicants need to become knowledgeable about British universities, the availability of their chosen field of study, requirement for obtaining a British degree, etc.
Information and applications are available on line: http://www.marshallscholarship.org/
All application materials are submitted in one package by Kalamazoo College on the prescribed forms, must be endorsed the President or Provost and be accompanied by academic references, etc.
