EPA Marshall Scholarship Program
In recognition of the global nature of environmental challenges and the need to pool the resources of many nations to solve environmental problems, EPA has joined with the United Kingdom’s Marshall Aid Commemoration Commission, which has been administering the esteemed Marshall Scholarships since 1953. Through an EPA Marshall Scholarship, up to three talented college graduates with strong backgrounds in environmentally relevant sciences are selected each year to receive up to five years of graduate education assistance. The first two years are supported by the United Kingdom, through a Marshall Scholarship to a university in Great Britain. Successful candidates may receive up to three additional years of support towards a doctoral degree, either in England or in the U.S.
To be eligible for the EPA Marshall Scholarship, applicants must first be selected as Marshall Scholars, applying in the usual way, and must be pursuing a graduate degree in one of the following areas:
- Physical, life or systematic sciences
- Engineering and technology
- Social and behavioral sciences
- Urban and regional planning
- Communication science
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. Applications are due each year on October 1.
