The Marshall Fellows program is designed to recognize demonstrated academic excellence, to create a cohort of intellectually engaged students, to encourage intellectual adventure, and to provide support to Fellows for academic enrichment. The program is also intended to help students think about and prepare for post-graduate opportunities.
Marshall Fellows can choose to pursue either an Academic Enrichment track or a Community and Public Service (CPS) track. Please visit the Marshall Academic Enrichment Fellow web page for more information about the academic and research proposals. Please see below for information about CPS Marshall proposals.
Community & Public Service (CPS) Marshall Proposals
How to Plan Your CPS Marshall Project
The proposal for a CPS Marshall project must be developed with a faculty advisor before the application is submitted so that the service project is presented within an academic framework.
Service should be one of the central components of a CPS Marshall. The service should be under the auspices of a recognized and respected agency, foundation or reputable group. The student should have some demonstrable ability and expertise to carry out the service project. The student must provide adequate background about the proposed agency, foundation or group.
The student should have evidence of prior commitment to the service activity, including class work, volunteer work and/or internship experiences.
