National and International Scholars is hosting a UK and Ireland Scholarship Information Session this Thursday, May 5 from 3:30-5:00 in 514 Illini Union Bookstore Building. Learn about a group of nationally competitive scholarships that fully fund graduate study 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 a brief overview of the Gates Cambridge, Marshall, Mitchell, and Rhodes scholarships.  Then, it will focus on some of the common application components for the scholarships and help participants start to develop content for them.  This is a great opportunity to strategize and get feedback on your ideas for your personal statement and other written portions of the applications.  The priority deadline for the Marshall scholarship is June 1, 2016, and the required campus deadline for many of the UK/Ireland scholarships is August 23, 2016, so now is the time to learn about the programs and get answers to your questions!
