Studying in the United Kingdom: Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, and Gates Scholarships

Time: April 12, 2016, 5:30-6:30pm
Location: Puck Building, 295 Lafayette Street, 2nd Floor

This hour long information session will cover the basics of fellowships for graduate study in the United Kingdom, focusing in particular on the Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell and Gates Scholarships. We’ll go over the difference between each scholarship foundation, what makes a plausible application, how to secure recommendation letters and think through the essay components of each applications, and the internal and external application deadlines. (The internal deadline for expressions of interest is May 1st. For more details, see here.)

There are many reasons why studying the U.K might be a good idea. You might benefit from studying another set of institutional structures (for instance, working in comparative public policy), or want a trans-Atlantic education. If you already have a Masters, you might be drawn by the possibility of enrolling in a Doctorate of Philosophy, which is essentially a three-year graduate degree that would give you the British equivalent of a PhD. We’ll cover these scenarios and more, offering a glossary of different terms and web-resources you should use as you research your options.

Students from ALL years are welcome (as well as alumni), though you will need to be at least a senior in Fall 2016 to be eligible for these scholarships this year. You will need to research each scholarship in detail for further information about eligibility.

RSVP here.
