Fulbright UK Summer Institutes Accepting Applications

The U.S.-U.K. Fulbright Commission is now accepting applications for the 2011 U.K. Summer Institutes.

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

Three summer programs are available for U.S. students in 2011: Fulbright Commission Newcastle University Summer Institute; the Fulbright Commission Roehampton University London Summer Institute; and the Fulbright Commission Wales Summer Institute.

The Summer Institute will cover the majority of participant costs. This includes round-trip airfare, tuition and fees at the University, accommodation and social program, subsistence and visa processing.
