Hampton University Senior Wins Marshall Scholarship

In 1953 the Marshall Scholarships program was established by an act of the British Parliament. Funded by the British government, the program is a national gesture of thanks to the American people for aid received under the Marshall Plan, the U.S.-financed program that led to the reconstruction of Europe after World War II. The scholarships provide funds for up to two years of study at a British university, travel, living expenses, and a book allowance. Applicants must earn a degree at an American college or university with a minimum of a 3.7 grade point average.

Kendyl Crawley-Crawford, a senior at Hampton University in Virginia, is one of 36 members of the Class of 2012 Marshall Scholars. This fall, she will enroll in a master’s degree program in environmental science at the University College of London. A native of Hampton, Virginia, she has a 3.9 grade point average in college and has been involved in research on marine fisheries and conservation. After studying in England, she plans to return to the United States and enter a Ph.D. program in environmental science.
