Our strategic partnership with Marshall Scholarships was set up in 2017 and
provides us with a unique opportunity to access high-achieving Masters
and PhD students from the USA.
Marshall Scholarships are funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and are overseen by the Marshall Aid Commemoration Commission. These scholarships are renowned for being the most sought-after international scholarships available to American students, and the Marshall Scholarships website is used by over 100,000 prospective American postgrad students every year.

In 2017 Marshall launched a new service on their website where students can research a course whilst remaining on the Marshall Scholarships website without having to search on other resources. The ‘Find A Course’ was launched in June of that year, containing a course search facility that is powered by Postgrad.com, and is a subset of the Postgrad.com course search data. We have incorporated a sophisticated filter on the data to show only courses that qualify for Marshall Scholarships to help the student in this key research phase.
By partnering up with Marshall Scholarships, we are giving you – our clients – unique access to quality students from the United States. We are delighted to see an increase of over 56% of users of our course finder on the Marshall site since last year. And this, in turn, is directing more and more quality postgraduate students to your universities. Our work with Marshall Scholarships together with our SEO campaigns to North America and targeted social media campaigns to this region has led to a 74% increase in users from the United States on Postgrad.com from 2017 to 2018. This is further establishing our position as a key player in recruiting American students to UK universities.
Speaking about our continued partnership, Assistant Secretary and Head of Scholarship Administration for Marshall, Ms Mary C Denyer, enthuses, “Postgrad Solutions has provided the Marshall Commission with a course-finder unique to us. This has meant that potential Marshall Scholars can search for courses at any university in the UK and have the reassurance that the course will be eligible for the Scholarship. The course search facility has been really well received in the States by both advisers and students alike, and is regularly used throughout the year as a reliable resource when researching UK course options. We are delighted that we are continuing to work with Postgrad Solutions.”
