This website provides a guide for students and faculty about some highly selective and distinguished scholarship programs available to University of Michigan students regardless of their school or college affiliation. The Provost’s Council on Student Honors oversees only three of these scholarship competitions: the Rhodes, Marshall, and Mitchell. The council members provide mentoring and select the students who will receive the necessary institutional endorsements for these scholarships.

Please take a look at the scholarship opportunities on this site. Consider which ones may be a good fit for you.

The Rhodes and Marshall Scholarships provide funding for two or three years of graduate study in Great Britain. Rhodes Scholarships are used in any program available at Oxford; Marshall Scholars can choose from a large number of universities and programs in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The George Mitchell Scholarship Program provides for one year of graduate work in the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland.

To be eligible for any of these three programs, you must hold an undergraduate degree by the fall in which the scholarship begins. Age and citizenship criteria can be found on the specific scholarship’s website.
