Marshall Scholar

BED student nominated
for Marshall Scholarship


Kathryn Mailen, a native of Palmer, Texas majoring in environmental design, was nominated by Texas A&M University for the 2005 Marshall Scholarship. The scholarship is among the most prestigious and highly coveted academic scholarships available to United States students.

Mailen contributed to the design of the Cambodia Landmine Museum, Rehabilitation, and Prevention Center to be built near Siem Reap, Cambodia and led efforts to raise funds for the project. She also gives her time to Habitat for Humanity and is involved in a restoration project in Pomona, Kan. Her primary area of academic interest is the interplay between built environments and the health of their users, citing the marked rise in asthma, depression, and obesity in recent years. If selected as a Marshall Scholar, she plans to pursue graduate study of architecture at University College, London.

The Marshall Scholarships began in 1953 as a gesture of thanks from the British Government for the U.S. assistance in rebuilding Europe after World War II. Each year, 40 scholars are selected to spend two years in graduate school at a British University, with all expenses paid by the British government.

The nominations were announced by the Office of Honors Programs and Academic Scholarships.
