(by the time they take up their scholarship i.e. September 2013) hold their first undergraduate degree from an accredited four-year college or university in the United States;
have obtained a grade point average of not less than 3.7 (or A-) on their undergraduate degree. (Exceptions will be considered only on the specific recommendation of the sponsoring college.)
have graduated from their first undergraduate college or university after April 2010.

To be eligible for the NIH Marshall Scholarship, applicants must first be selected as Marshall Scholars, applying in the usual way.

Chosen Scholars will receive joint supervision from their British University and the NIH and will ultimately receive a doctoral degree from the British Institution.
