The Fulbright Commission is pleased to announce the opening of its competition for the Fulbright UK Summer Institutes 2012.
This year the Commission is again offering exciting and unique opportunities for US undergraduates to follow a three-six week summer program at a world-class UK 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 United Kingdom and its diverse population whilst developing their communication, research and presentation skills. This year we are 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, subsistence, and cultural visits.
2012 UK Summer Institutes will be held at:
Wales Summer Institute (3 Universities);
Nottingham Trent University;
King’s College, London;
Queen’s University Belfast; and
Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in association with the American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS).
The application deadline is 16 March 2012.
