Applications are now open for the 2013 Fulbright UK Summer Institutes!
The US-UK Fulbright Commission offers special Summer Institutes for US citizens to come to the UK. These summer programmes provide the opportunity for US undergraduates (aged over 18), with at least two years of undergraduate study left to complete, to come to the UK on a three, four, five or six week academic and cultural summer programme.
Participants in these programmes will get the opportunity to experience an exciting academic programme 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.
Students may now choose from nine different Institutes, across twelve host locations, in each of the four countries that comprise the United Kingdom. In addition to six programmes from previous years, the Programme welcomes three brand new Institutes with Strathclyde University/Dundee University, the University of Bristol, and the University of Exeter. More information on each Institute can be found on their website (http://www.fulbright.org.uk/fulbright-awards/exchanges-to-the-uk/undergraduates). The deadline to apply is 11 March 2013.
Be sure to follow @FulbrightAwards where we will post weekly application tips (‘Twips’) beginning in the New Year.
Case studies of previous participants may be found online as well: http://www.fulbright.org.uk/about/meet-our-fulbrighters.
Additional information will be provided in the coming months. For now, if you have any questions please contact Valerie Schreiner, Programme Coordinator, Fulbright Summer Institutes (Valerie@fulbright.org.uk).
