Scholarships to Study in the U.K. (Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, and Churchill Scholarships)
If you are a rising senior, a current senior, or a recent graduate interested in applying for the Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, Gates, or Churchill Scholarships to the UK or Ireland, we want to hear from you!
To enter the Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, and/or Churchill Scholarship competitions, students must first be nominated by the University of Connecticut through a process managed by the Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships. To be considered for nomination for one of these awards, you must complete the following:
- Complete the “Statement of Interest” form linked at the top of this page (and found at https://s.uconn.edu/uk-statement-of-interest) before the May 31, 2023 deadline. Submitting the statement does not commit you to applying, so if you think you’re interested, let us know. (If you wish to apply after the statement of intent is due, please Email Vin Moscardelli to discuss your candidacy and get further instructions.)
- For the Rhodes, Marshall, and/or Mitchell, students must submit complete internal applications (submission instructions to follow) by 4:00pm, Thursday, August 24, 2023. (Note that while most of these applications require 4-8 letters of recommendation, potential applicants only need to submit three letters by the time of this campus deadline.) For the Churchill, the campus deadline is Thursday, September 28, 2023.
A panel of faculty, staff, and administrators will review the application materials and interview a subset of the strongest candidates for each award. From this group, the committee selects the eventual nominees who will represent UConn in the national competitions. Applications are due to the respective foundations on September 19 (Marshall), September 28 (Mitchell), and October 2 (Rhodes). Applications for the Churchill Scholarship are due to the Churchill Foundation on November 1.
Students applying for Fulbright U.S. Student Program grants to the UK or Fulbright UK Summer Institutes are not required to complete the Statement of Interest and should instead visit https://www.onsf.uconn.edu/fulbright-us-student-program/ for the most up-to-date information. Student may also contact incoming Fulbright Program Adviser Dr. Michael Cunningham directly to discuss their interest and eligibility. He is available via Nexus or Email.
