Fellowships & Advanced Studies is thrilled to welcome Marshall Scholarship alumni from the Association of Marshall Scholars (AMS) Diversity Outreach Initiative to talk with Mizzou students interested in applying for the Marshall Scholarship. The AMS Diversity Outreach Initiative is run by Marshall Scholar alumni who aim to attract the most qualified and diverse applicants to the scholarship, with a special focus on providing support and resources to students from groups historically underrepresented in Marshall Scholarship cohorts.
Three Marshall Scholarship alumni will speak to their experiences living and studying in the U.K. as a Marshall Scholar. Their aims are twofold: to combat stereotypes about what kinds of people can be a scholar, and to help even the playing field by providing all potential applicants with valuable insight into what to expect from the Marshall Scholarship program. They will emphasize the personal experience of being a Marshall Scholar, rather than providing direct application assistance.
