Want to study in England? Apply for a Marshall scholarship - plus more scholarships

Hi, readers!

This clipart is from

Have you ever dreamed of going to school in another country?

I ran across an article about studying in England today on the Princeton University site. They are current and former Princeton students. However, this scholarship is available to students from all over. It is available for two years at any British University, for any field of study.

I have to say, this appeals to me so much. What a great opportunity! Studying in England would be a dream come true for me, and would also have been earlier in my life.

There is a long history to this scholarship. As the Princeton site explains,  the Marshall Scholarship was set up "in 1953 as a British gesture to the United States for the assistance received after World War II under the Marshall Plan."
