If you wish to apply for a Marshall Scholarship, you should take the following steps:
The campus deadline is early September. The Marshall deadline is in early October. Contact the campus adviser for the specific campus deadline and check the Marshall website for the national deadline.
The Mitchell scholarship application is similar to Marshall. You must complete an on-line application and submit a a personal statement and your transcripts. You must also obtain four letters of recommendation and an institutional endorsement. Graduate students and alumni do not need an institutional endorsement, only current undergraduates require a letter of endorsement. To obtain endorsement from DePaul, you must work closely with the campus scholarship adviser.
There are two important, unique aspects of the Mitchell application. First, you cannot receive any assistance with your personal statement. No one other than you may make edits or even suggest improvements to your essay. Second, you must submit a video interview shortly after the national deadline, which is typically in late September. Once Mitchell certifies your application is complete, you will receive instructions about how to submit the video.
