Jacob Imam, a senior university scholar at Baylor University, has been selected as one of 32 American university students—and the only student from a Texas school—to receive the 2016 Marshall Scholarship. The Marshall Scholarship was established in 1953 to express British gratitude for the European Recovery Program after World War II. The scholarship may be used for study at any university in the United Kingdom, with most Marshall Scholars choosing to earn an advanced degree during their two years of British education. Imam will pursue a master in philosophy degree in Islamic studies and history at Oxford University. He later plans to earn a master’s degree in Jewish studies from Hebrew University in Jerusalem and then return to the United Kingdom for a doctorate in comparative religion.
