EPA Marshall Scholarship

The EPA Marshall Scholarship Program provides an opportunity for exceptional U.S. students to begin or continue their graduate environmental studies at any appropriate British university. Jointly funded by the Marshall Commission and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), these Scholarships will support research specifically in the area of the environment and can be in any related field.

The proposed program of study must be demonstrably relevant to environmental protection, restoration or stewardship; environmental public health; or ecosystem health. Applicants whose work emphasizes the study of global environmental problems, international collaborative approaches to environmental problem solving, technology exchange programs or research to improve international dialog regarding the environment will be given first consideration.

To be eligible for the EPA Marshall Scholarship, applicants must first be selected as Marshall Scholars, applying in the usual way. Applicants must have at least a 3.7 GPA.

The Marshall Commission will pay for the first two years of the Scholarship and the Scholar will spend this time in the UK, and the EPA will pay for up to three additional years of study, which can be spent in the UK or the US, provided this research culminates in a doctoral degree.
