A year after producing two winners, Penn saw no Marshall Scholarship recipients this year, the Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships announced Monday.
The news comes on the heels of Penn learning that, for the third year in a row, it also did not have any students win the Rhodes Scholarship.
The Marshall Scholarship pays for two-to-three years of graduate study in the United Kingdom. Before Penn’s two winners last year — 2012 College and Wharton graduate Corey Metzman and 2009 College graduate Michael Poll — the University had seen 12 Marshall recipients overall since 1985, according to CURF data.
This year marks the first time since the 2009 awards were released that Penn did not have any winners. The University did have one finalist for the scholarship this year, according to CURF Assistant Director for Communication Aaron Olson.
“As you can see, it’s a large applicant pool and a small number of awards,” he said. “There’s really nothing else to say.”Comments powered by Disqus
