Opportunities to consider – The EPA Marshall Scholarship
EPA MARSHALL SCHOLARSHIPS
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. Applicants may study at any appropriate UK Institution.
The EPA Marshall Scholarship Program provides an opportunity for exceptional U.S. students to begin or continue their graduate environmental studies at a British university.
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.
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, providing this research culminates in a doctoral degree.
Any Marshall Scholar who is selected for research in a Environmental field may be considered by the EPA for an EPA Marshall Scholarship – http://www.marshallscholarship.org/applications/epa
