Marshall Scholar Alumni and Diversity Discussion Panel  RSVP here    

Join us for a 50-minute discussion that will demystify the Marshall Scholarship experience, in a conversation with four alumni of the program. Bring your difficult questions about what kinds of people become Marshall Scholars (all sorts!) and whether applying is right for you (let's talk about your career goals!), and we'll answer them honestly. You'll learn about everyday student life in the UK, cultural adjustments of many flavors, the benefits of the tight-knit community of Marshall Scholars, and what happens after the scholarship.
