The Two Year Marshall Scholarship is tenable for two academic years (ie 22 months), but may be extended by the Commission, though not beyond the end of a third academic year. Third-year extensions are granted by the Commission on a limited basis, for strong academic reasons, subject to the availability of funds. In addition, thanks to the generous support of the following Universities:
Up to three third-year extensions may be granted by the University of Oxford to those pursuing a doctorate at Oxford.
Up to two third-year extensions may be granted by the University of St Andrews to those pursuing a doctorate at St Andrews.
The One Year Marshall Scholarship is tenable for one academic year (ie 12 months) and cannot be extended.
