Of all UK schools Marlborough has won the second most Morehead-Cain scholarships over the years, and Ed Perkins (TU 1999-2004 and former Morehead-Cain Scholar) returned to the College on Tuesday evening.
He told Upper School pupils about the astonishing opportunity that the scholarship offers: a fully funded world class liberal arts education (including four summer programmes of enrichment) is complemented after university by the availability of an unparalleled network of alumni in top positions almost everywhere.
Less than half a dozen lucky UK applicants are selected every year, and the competition is fierce amongst the academically excellent who demonstrate clear leadership qualities and wish to contribute to their communities. We hope another Marlburian will be inspired and selected to continue our tradition in the not too distant future.
