Moss, Wilkes named 2022 Marshall Scholars

Alan Flurry

Franklin College seniors Natalie Moss and Lauren Wilkes received the prestigious Marshall Scholarship, which funds graduate study in the United Kingdom at any institution and in any field of study. 2022 is the first time two University of Georgia students received the honor in the same year:


Honors seniors Natalie Moss of Norcross and Lauren Wilkes of New Orleans, Louisiana, will continue their studies in the U.K. next year through the award, which is among the most selective graduate scholarships for Americans. UGA is the only public institution of higher learning to have multiple recipients this year, along with private institutions Harvard, Yale, the University of Pennsylvania and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The Marshall Scholarship—designed to strengthen the enduring relationship between the British and American peoples, their governments and their institutions—funds graduate study in the United Kingdom at any institution and in any field of study. This year, 40 students were named Marshall Scholars.

Moss is majoring in anthropology and geology with a minor in biology, and Wilkes is a Foundation Fellow majoring in data science with a minor in Chinese language and literature. Both are students in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and the Morehead Honors College, and both have received funding for their research through UGA’s Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities.
