Study in the UK this Summer (Expenses Paid): Application Deadline 2/26 + 3/5

Published on February 10, 2015

The US-UK Fulbright Commission offers special Summer Institutes for US citizens to come to the UK.  These summer programs 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 program.  First- and second-year undergraduate students are eligible to apply. You must have a 3.5 GPA to be eligible. If you never studied abroad before, this may be a great opportunity to have a first study abroad experience. For more information, contact natlscholar@vcu.edu or visit the site here.

Participants in these programs will get the opportunity to experience an exciting academic program 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.

There are nine Summer Programs available for US students in 2015:

The Summer Institutes will cover the majority of participant costs.  This includes round-trip airfare from the US to the UK, tuition and fees at the host university/institution, accommodation and meals and in some cases a small daily allowance.
