US General George C. Marshall The Marshall Scholarship Program

In 1953 the British Parliament established the Marshall Scholarship program, named in honor of US General George C. Marshall. The program was created as a thank-you to the American people for the assistance given to Europe in the aftermath of World War II through the European Recovery Program commonly known as the Marshall Plan.
