Spirit of Service Scholar awarded prestigious Marshall Scholarship
Madeline Sands has been named a recipient of the Marshall Scholarship, which will enable her to pursue graduate studies at the university of her choice in the United Kingdom.
Marshall Scholarships are highly competitive, and are awarded to up to 40 American students nationwide, yearly. Marshall Scholars are characterized by their talent, independence and wide-ranging skills.
"I’m so honored that the British government, through the Marshall Scholarship, is providing this tremendous opportunity for the advancement of scientific research. The scholarship will allow me to build on the work I have begun at Arizona State University,” Sands said.
Sands will travel to England this October to attend the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. As an undergraduate student in Barrett, the Honors College, Sands graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in anthropology from ASU's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. She will graduate in May 2014 with her master’s degree in global health from ASU’s School of Human Evolution and Social Change. Medical school will be her next pursuit after completing her studies in London.
In addition to being invited to Phi Beta Kappa as a junior, Sands has also received numerous awards while at ASU, such as Barrett, the Honors College Outstanding Graduate for Research, Moeur Award, School of Human Evolution and Social Change Alumni Award for Academic Achievement and the Governor’s Scholarship, funded by the Consular Corps of Arizona. Sands was also named a Spirit of Service scholar, providing her with the opportunity to learn skills that help student leaders become successful in public service.
