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:
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.

A native of Columbia, Maryland, Nick will graduate with a B.S. in Environmental Science--including a concentration in Atmospheric Science--and an M.S. in Geography from the University of Delaware, where he holds a Eugene duPont Memorial Distinguished Scholarship. His master's research uses an atmospheric general circulation model to examine the effects of Great Plains snowcover on European winter climates. This work builds upon two summers of inquiries into numerical modeling: first at UD, and subsequently at the Imperial College in London. He is a Senior Writing Fellow at UD, and is actively involved in the Presbyterian Campus Ministry. Nick will read for a Ph.D. in Meteorology at the University of Reading.

Jessica comes from San Mateo, California; she studies at MIT, where her undergraduate research focuses on the genetics of viruses that infect marine cyanobacteria. A Biology major and Chemistry minor, she is fascinated by the science of cooking, and spends more waking hours in the kitchen than in her own room. She is also a self-professed environmentalist and, after graduating in 2005, plans to study for an MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management at Oxford. Jessica competes in ballroom dance, does road cycling for fun, listens to Baroque music, and speaks French and German (and is working on Chinese).
