"As a Fulbrighter, you act as a bridge. A way of connecting two countries. We live in a world in which so many voices are speaking, but few are speaking to each other."

"Being on this Fulbright scholarship has been a life-changing nine months for me. To leave what you know as a norm and be immersed into another culture has taught me... the value of openness and the importance of being open to different perspectives."
Fiona Asiedu, Fulbright alumna, All Disciplines Awards (2017/18)
“I returned from the US with a greater insight into a fascinating country and a genuine affection that I think comes from living in the country and getting to know its people.”
Dr. Bynvant Sandhu, Fulbright alumna, Royal College of Surgeons of England Scholar Award (2016/17)
“Growing up in a Scottish town, the idea of studying literature in New York City was a scenario only fit for the movies. Since starting my MFA at NYU, I’ve been inspired by both the city’s endless energy and the incredible thinkers I’ve been exposed to.”
Catherine Penman, Fulbright alumna, All Disciplines Award - Alumni Award (2018/19)
"I would urge all aspiring changemakers interested in using business for the common good to apply… you will be opening yourself up to a world of profound learning experiences, untold possibilities and life-long friendships."
Marc Anani-Isaac, Fulbright alumnus, British Friends of Harvard Business School Award (2018-19)
"There is no way I would have been able to visit American universities before applying without the Sutton Trust US Programme, and all of their help with essays and test preparation and references and interviews was invaluable. I would have been lost without Fulbright's endlessly patient advice and support."
Harry Edwards, Sutton Trust US Programme, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill class of 2017
"I have gained a more open mind and greater knowledge about the world and how decisions in other nations affect my own. The programme helped me come to decisions about what I want my future career to be."
Abigail King, Fulbright Durham University Summer Institute 2016
"My Fulbright experience has had a dramatic impact on my life: I was able to make significant progress with my research, I traveled extensively, and made new friends for life."
Philip Kaisary, Fulbright Scholar Award, Vanderbilt University 2015-16
"During my Fulbright year I deeply engaged with the Scottish artistic scene, and following my Fulbright I have remained in Scotland in order to continue my studies through a PhD and to build upon my work with Scottish arts organisations. It was the perfect (well-supported) leap I needed in order to kick-start my academic and artistic careers."
Katie Ailes, Fulbright Postgraduate Award, University of Strathclyde 2014-15
"Upon graduating, I decided that I wanted to work in higher education, specifically in an international office. I am now an International Students and Scholars Adviser for the International Center at my alma mater, Rowan University, heading down an incredible career path that I don't think would have been possible without my experience in the UK."
Katelyn Sullivan, Fulbright University of Exeter Summer Institute 2014
"I wanted to pursue oncology research in a translational lab driving its research towards clinical application. The healthcare system is so different in the USA. I thought pursuing research in the USA would make me a more rounded clinician scientist at this early stage of my career."
Karin Purshouse, Fulbright Postgraduate Award, Yale University 2014-15
"Studying in the US has broadened my worldview, as I have not only had the opportunity to interact with Americans and the American culture, but also with a wide array of fellow international students. Having the opportunity to incorporate research into my studies has given me a head start on my future goals to become a neuroscientist."
Allie Hexley, Sutton Trust US Programme, Massachusetts Institute of Technology class of 2017
"Fulbright showed me what one can achieve with some drive, and going to university in the US built on that drive. I was fortunate enough to obtain a position at a financial firm in New York City in just my second summer in the States. I don't believe I would have had the same career support elsewhere."
Leo Mackenzie, Sutton Trust US Programme, Lafayette College class of 2018
