Fulbright Summer Institutes for Sophomores/Freshmen

US-UK Fulbright Commission offers special Summer Institutes for U.S. citizens to come to the UK. These expenses-paid summer programs provide the opportunity for U.S. undergraduates (U.S. citizens, aged over 18, see eligibility details below), with at least two years of undergraduate study left to complete, to come to the UK on a three or four week academic and cultural summer program.

Participants in these programs will get the opportunity to experience an exciting academic program at a highly regarded UK University, explore the culture, heritage and history of the UK and develop their academic ability by improving presentation, research and communication skills.

Attend a National Scholarships Office info session to learn more!

Please note: this program gives preference to students who have had little or no study or travel outside of the US.

Application deadline: TBA (likely in early February)
