2016 US-UK Fulbright Summer Institutes

The US-UK Fulbright Commission 2016 UK Summer Institute application period is open! 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.  Applications received after this date will not be accepted.
 Theses Summer Programmes available for US students in 2016:
·         Scotland Summer Institute 
·         Wales Summer Institute

Full details, selection criteria and application forms are available on our website.
·         Online application form:
The 2016 application form is now online.  A link can be found on the ‘Applying’ tab of each Institute’s website.  We highly recommend students prepare a draft application with the form provided on the website.  Application instructions and FAQs are available for reference. 
·         Previous travel outside the US: 
We state on our website that preference will be given to those who do not have extensive, recent experience in the UK. While your experience in the UK won’t preclude you from applying, you would be at a disadvantage. However, a strong application wouldn’t prevent you from being selected. We encourage anyone eligible and interested to apply for our awards.
  • Recommendations:  Students should direct their references to the link on the program webpage for an online reference form.  All references should be completed using this form.
