Amount of grant: The stipend of a Rhodes Scholarship consists of a direct payment to the scholar's college of all tuition fees, plus a maintenance allowance paid directly to the scholar.
Dates: Serious applicants usually begin preparing their essays for a Rhodes Scholarship as early as the spring semester of their junior year, and certainly over the summer leading into the senior year of studies. Deadline for submission to the UNT Faculty Nominating Committee, c/o the Office for Nationally Competitive Scholarships, Kendall Hall 162, is August 8. This is an internal deadline that exists in advance of the deadline by which UNT nominees must submit their applications to the region-level selection committee.

British Marshall Scholarships
The Marshall Plan, named after Secretary of State George Marshall, was the Truman Administration's inspired and generous program to save Europe from economic and social collapse after World War II and to counteract the spread of Soviet influence. Food was scarce, people were starving, and there was little hard currency to pay for essential imports. The Plan was a lifeline for Europe. In 1953 the British Government started the Marshall Scholarship Program as a way of thanking America for its help.
Today the Marshall Scholarships Program is one of the most prestigious offered in the United States. The program looks for tomorrow's leader: for high intelligence and academic achievement; for social commitment and responsibility; for leadership potential; and for originality and flair. Provisions for Students in the College of Music: British Marshall Scholarships are tenable at the following institutions:

U.S. Fulbright Graduate Student Program
The U.S. Fulbright Graduate Student Program is designed to give recent Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts graduates, master's and doctoral candidates, and young professionals and artists opportunities for personal development and international experience. Grantees plan their own programs. Projects may include university course work, independent library or field research, classes in a music conservatory or art school, special projects in the social or life sciences, or a combination of these.
The Fulbright program welcomes applications from men and women in all fields and at all levels. Graduating seniors need not have formulated specific educational or career goals, since the awards are intended to broaden their horizons before they determine their career plans.
The U.S. Congress created the Fulbright program in 1946, immediately after World War II, to foster mutual understanding among nations through educational and cultural exchanges. Senator J. William Fulbright, sponsor of the legislation, saw it as a step toward building an alternative to armed conflict.
Today the Fulbright program is the U.S. government's premier scholarship program. It enables U.S. students and artists to benefit from unique resources in every corner of the world. Each year the program allows more than six hundred Americans to study or conduct research in more than one hundred nations.
Restrictions: Most Fulbright grants are awarded for programs of study and research that will require an academic year. The applicant must be in good health and a U.S. citizen at the time of application. In most cases, you must hold the U.S. bachelor's degree at the beginning date of your grant. Language requirements vary. In general, grantees are expected to be able to communicate with the people in the host country and carry out the proposed project.
Deadlines: Contact Ms. Mary Beth Butler, UNT Study Abroad Center, Kendall Hall, Room 148; phone, (940) 565-2207.
Amount of grant: Fulbright full grants generally provide round-trip transportation, language or orientation courses (where appropriate), tuition, book and research allowances, maintenance for the academic year based on living costs in the host country, and health and accident insurance.
