Bouland (YC’09) has won a Marshall Scholarship to study at Cambridge for 2 years.
Named for Secretary of State George C. Marshall, who was Army chief of staff during World War II, the scholarship program began in 1953 as a gesture of gratitude from the British people to the United States for help the United Kingdom received after the war through the Marshall Plan. The scholarships offer talented young Americans a chance to study for up to three years at a British university of their choice. More than 1,500 Americans have been Marshall Scholars. They include Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer; Pulitzer Prize-winning author Tom Friedman; Yale Law School Dean Harold Hongju Koh; and Nobel laureate biochemist Roger Tsien.
