Fulbrights Available for UK Summer Courses

This year the Fulbright Commission is again offering opportunities for U.S. undergraduates to follow a three to six week summer program at a world-class United Kingdom university or cultural institution.
Each Summer Institute provides an immersive academic, cultural and social experience for freshman or sophomore American students who wish to deepen their knowledge of the U.K. and its diverse population while developing their communication, research and presentation skills.

The commission is offering Summer Institutes that cover a range of disciplines as well as some that focus on specific disciplines such as theatre, art and design, archaeology and Irish studies.

The scholarship covers participant costs including academic program fees, travel, housing and cultural visits.

The 2012 U.K. Summer Institutes will take place at: Cardiff University, Bangor University and Aberystwyth University; Durham University; Newcastle University; Nottingham Trent University; Queen’s University Belfast; and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in association with the American Institute for Foreign Study.

The application deadline is March 16.
