2 Ga. college students get Marshall Scholarship

ATLANTA -- Two students at Georgia colleges have received the prestigious Marshall Scholarship for graduate study in the United Kingdom.

Agnes Scott senior Meg Beyer is the first student in the college's history to get the scholarship, which has been awarded to up to 40 students nationally each year since its inception in 1954. Beyer plans to attend the University of Nottingham to study efforts to combat sex trafficking.

Emory senior Kathryn Marklein will use the all-inclusive scholarship to pursue two master's degrees: one in skeletal and dental bioarcheology at the University College London and another in osteology and funerary archaeology at the University of Sheffield.
