43 US college students awarded scholarships to study in UK

December 4, 2017 by The Associated Press

Forty-three U.S. students were awarded the 2018 Marshall Scholarship, the largest class of scholars since 2007, according to the British Embassy.

The list provided by the embassy Saturday to the Associated Press names recipients from colleges and universities across the U.S. The U.K. on Monday will announce the scholarships, which are funded mainly by the U.K. government.

The scholarships aim to, among other things, enable intellectually distinguished young Americans to study in the U.K., according to its website . They fund study for up to three years at any British institution.

Created in 1953, the scholarship began as a gesture of gratitude to the U.S. for the assistance the U.K. received after World War II under the Marshall Plan, the program that aided in Europe's economic recovery between 1948 and 1951.

Alumni include Supreme Court Associate Justices Stephen Breyer and Neil Gorsuch, and the late 2008 Nobel Prize recipient Roger Tsien, a biochemist.
