Three-to-four weeks long, the UK Summer Institute Programme may be the shortest exchange programme the US-UK Fulbright Commission offers but it has a transformational impact on participants.
Targeted at US undergraduates who have never left the US and are unlikely to without our support, the programme brings students a UK university to explore local culture, heritage, and history. Like our other Fulbright programmes, participants are selected for academic merit, leadership potential and cultural curiosity. Many of our participants are low income and/or first-generation college students from a diverse range of backgrounds.
In the words of Kassie, the first person in her family to travel outside the US: “winning that award shaped my academic and professional career paths. My hope is that the award can do the same for other low income, first generation college students.”
This summer, we are delighted to offer 36 placements spread over 5 different Summer Institutes in partnership with Aberystwyth University, the University of Bristol, Queens University Belfast, the University of Exeter, the University of Strathclyde and the Glasgow School of Art. With the deadline of February 7 around the corner, we encourage you to share with your networks and anyone who you think might be interested in this life-changing opportunity.
