Marshall Scholarships
Up to 40 scholarships for study toward a degree in the United Kingdom are awarded yearly to U.S. citizens who hold a first degree with a minimum GPA of 3.7 after freshman year.

Candidates must have received an undergraduate degree in any discipline within 3 years of taking up the scholarship, which is tenable at any British university for 2 to 3 academic years. Applications must be made through a regional center in the United States and are due in mid-October of the year preceding tenure.

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
