UK & Ireland Scholarships Info Session & Application Workshop

Fancy a fully-funded graduate degree at a top British or Irish university?  Join us to learn about a group of scholarships that allow you to pursue your academic goals in the United Kingdom and Ireland!


This informational session and application workshop is targeted to juniors, seniors, and graduate or professional students, and will provide an overview of the Gates Cambridge, Marshall, Mitchell, and Rhodes scholarships.


When: Thursday, May 7, 3:30-5:00pm

Where: 514 Illini Union Bookstore Building (entrance near Coble Hall)


We will discuss the:

  • basic eligibility requirements,
  • selection criteria, and
  • application processes for these awards.


The University of Illinois’ newest Marshall Scholar, Jacob Calvert, will be on hand to share his application experience!


The latter portion of the event will help participants begin to craft their applications for these scholarships.  This is a great opportunity to strategize and get feedback on your ideas for your application essays.  The priority deadline for the Marshall and Gates Cambridge scholarships is June 1, 2015, and the required campus deadline for many of the UK/Ireland scholarships is August 25, 2015, so now is the time to get started!
