Plan II senior Margaret Siu wins 2020 Marshall Scholarship

Plan II senior Margaret Siu is the recipient of a 2020 Marshall Scholarship! Margaret will be attending the University of Oxford on a full-ride, pursuing two masters degrees in Contemporary Chinese Studies (with a focus on statecraft) and Global Governance & Diplomacy.

Margaret states, "Receiving the Marshall Scholarship affirms my mission to gain a diplomatic understanding to navigate between clashing ideologies. This scholarship will allow me to study at Oxford. There I will learn from a global perspective about how soft power works through narratives and especially how the Chinese government curates stories. Given current harrowing events, these stories cannot be forgotten."

As a first-year student, Margaret founded Apricity Magazine, an award-winning magazine that is entirely run by UT students and recently became the official literary and arts journal of the University.

Marshall Scholarships finance young Americans of high ability to study for a degree in the United Kingdom. Up to fifty Scholars are selected each year to study at graduate level at an UK institution in any field of study.

Margaret is the 16th Plan II student to receive a Marshall Scholarship since 1977.

Congratulations Margaret!
