Event description

Description

This hour long information session will cover the basics of fellowships for graduate study in the United Kingdom, focusing in particular on the Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell and Gates Scholarships. We'll go over the difference between each scholarship foundation, what makes a plausible application, how to secure recommendation letters and think through the essay components of each applications. We will also discuss the internal application process at NYU. (NYU's internal deadline for expressions of interest is May 1st.)

There are many reasons why studying the U.K might be a good idea. You might benefit from studying another set of institutional structures (for instance, working in comparative public policy), or want a trans-Atlantic education. If you already have a Masters, you might be drawn by the possibility of enrolling in a Doctorate of Philosophy, which is essentially a three-year graduate degree that would give you the British equivalent of a PhD. We’ll cover these scenarios and more, offering a glossary of different terms and web-resources you should use as you research your options.

Students from ALL years are welcome (as well as alumni), though you will need to be at least a senior in Fall 2017 to be eligible for they next competition cycle for these scholarships. You will need to research each scholarship in detail for further information about eligibility.
