Jointly funded by the Marshall Commission and the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, these Scholarships support research specifically in the subject areas of bioscience, medicine and related disciplines with a predominant application in bioscience. Applicants may study at any appropriate UK Institution.
To be eligible for the NIH Marshall Scholarship, applicants must first be selected as Marshall Scholars, applying in the usual way.
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 NIH will pay for the third and fourth years and will give the Scholar the opportunity to research at NIH in Bethesda. Chosen Scholars will receive joint supervision from their British University and the NIH and will ultimately receive a doctoral degree from the British Institution.
Any Marshall Scholar who is selected for research in a Bio-medical/Science field can be put forward to the NIH for consideration.
