Scholarship Events and Deadlines

Join us to learn about a group of nationally competitive scholarships that fully fund graduate study in the United Kingdom and Ireland! This informational session and application workshop is targeted to juniors, seniors, and graduate or professional students, and will provide an overview of the Gates Cambridge, Marshall, Mitchell, and Rhodes scholarships.  We will discuss basic eligibility requirements, selection criteria, and the application processes for these awards.  The latter portion of the event is designed to introduce some of the common application components for the scholarships and help participants start to develop content for them. Scholarship alumni will also be available to answer your questions about these awards. This is a great opportunity to strategize and get feedback on your ideas for your personal statement and other written portions of the applications.  The priority deadline for the Marshall scholarship is June 3, 2019, and the required campus deadline for many of the UK/Ireland scholarships is August 20, 2019, so now is the time to learn about the programs and get answers to your questions!
