Joshua Lappen, who is studying classics and atmosphere/energy engineering in the Civil & Environmental Engineering department is one of two Stanford students who will be heading to the University of Oxford next fall as 2018 Marshall Scholars.

They are among the 43 students from across the United States chosen to receive Marshall Scholarships, which provide recipients the opportunity for graduate study in any field for up to three years at a university of their choice in the United Kingdom.

The scholarship was established to strengthen the enduring relationship between the British and American peoples, their governments and their institutions, and to enhance the intellectual and personal growth of scholars. The scholarship is named for former U.S. Secretary of State and Army Gen. George Marshall, who formulated the Marshall Plan to aid economic development in Western Europe after World War II.
