Two Watson students awarded Marshall, Schwarzman scholarships

Brown students Meghan Murphy and Max Pushkin were named to this year’s classes of Marshall and Schwarzman scholars, two prestigious international scholarship programs that enable graduate study abroad.

Pushkin, who completed his degree requirements this month as a 0.5er, was awarded a Marshall Scholarship, which provides full funding for two years of graduate study in the United Kingdom, where he will attend the University of Oxford and the University of St Andrews. Murphy, a member of the Class of 2023, earned a Schwarzman Scholarship to pursue a master’s degree in global affairs at Tsinghua University, one of China’s most prestigious universities.

The Marshall and Schwarzman scholarships are among the most selective awards across the globe. This year, 40 Marshall Scholars were chosen from among 951 applicants from around the U.S. This year’s class of Schwarzman Scholars includes 151 scholars from 36 countries, chosen from a pool of nearly 3,000 applicants.

For each of Brown’s winners, their scholarship will give them the opportunity to further their impact on the world through international study.
