Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, and Gates Cambridge Scholarships Information 

Dr. Deirdre Moloney, Director of Fellowships, will be hosting an 
information session on a range of scholarships available to U.S. students 
for graduate programs in the U.K. and Ireland. The session is scheduled 
for Wednesday, March 4th , in Johnson Center 239A from 7-8:30 p.m. These 
postgraduate scholarships are the most prestigious awards given to 
American undergraduates and recent alumni. Students who have excelled 
academically (typically with a GPA of at least a 3.8), have stellar 
leadership and civic engagement records, and strong presentation skills 
are selected for nomination by Mason. Patrick Rumley, a 2008 graduate, is 
the first Mason student to be named a Marshall Scholar.

These scholarships fully fund masters’ degrees and living expenses at 
Oxford, Cambridge, London School of Economics, Trinity, Saint Andrews, and 
other highly competitive universities in the U.K. and Ireland. In some 
cases, recipients are eligible for additional Ph.D. level funding. Please 
note that each program has separate requirements, and are tenable at 
specific institutions. Some have age restrictions and/or are limited to 
U.S. citizens. For more details on each, please refer to the specific
