Ambika Joins Marshall Committee to Select Future Leaders

Dr. Ambika Bumb has joined the Marshall Selection Committee to pick the next Marshall Scholars to travel across the pond to the United Kingdom for graduate studies.  The scholarships have strengthened the bonds between the two countries since 1953 when they were first established by the British government to honor U.S. Secretary of State George C. Marshall and express Britain’s gratitude for economic assistance received through the Marshall Plan after World War II.

The Marshall Scholarship enables 30-40 intellectually distinguished young Americans to study in the UK each year while also gaining an understanding of Britain to act as future ambassadors between the USA and the UK.  The students selected are noted for guiding school, government, and community work, as well as excelling in studies and personal endeavors.

Former Marshall Scholars are now government dignitaries, pioneers in science, award-winning authors, and industry leaders such as Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, Nobel Laureate Roger Tsien, New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, Linkedin founder Reid Hoffman….and Bikanta’s own Ambika Bumb.

The Southeast Marshall Selection Committee at the British Consulate in Atlanta, Georgia: Mr. Erroll Davis (President and CEO of Alliant Energy Corp; Chancellor of the University System of Georgia), Dr. Jeff Rosensweig (Director of Emory’s Goizueta Business School Global Perspectives Program), Dr. Ambika Bumb (CEO of Bikanta), Dr. Jane Hawkins (Professor of Mathematics at University of North Carolina), Dr. Mark Bell (Ethos Capital Partners; Adjunct Professor of Finance at Emory University; Director of Bodleian Library), and British Consul General Jeremy Pilmore-Bedford
