The Rhodes Scholarships, the oldest international fellowships, were established in 1902 to bring outstanding students from many countries around the world to the University of Oxford. Thirty-two American Rhodes Scholars are chosen each year from among those nominated by selection committees in each of the fifty states. In most years, a Rhodes Scholar is selected from an institution that has not formerly supplied a successful applicant.
Marshall Scholarships finance young Americans of high ability to study for a degree in the United Kingdom. Forty individuals are selected each year to study at a graduate or, in some cases, undergraduate institution each year in the U.K. Fellows are supported for two years. The fellowship award includes: university fees; living expenses; an annual book and thesis grant; grants for daily research and travel; and travel expenses to and from the United States. In some cases, where applicable, the scholarship will also pay towards supporting a dependent spouse.
