The US-UK Fulbright Commission is once again excited to offer students a fantastic opportunity to be immersed in the study of British academia and culture via the Fulbright UK Summer Institutes programme.
Students will take part in research, collaboration, presentation, and cultural events at a prestigious British university. They will enhance their leadership skills, develop knowledge and understanding of new subjects and become ambassadors for cultural exchange between the UK and the US.
The programme covers the majority of all costs incurred, including flights to and from the UK, university fees, and room and board at the host British university.
Students from all areas of study are encouraged to apply. Each Summer Institute will cover a different theme such as acting at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, the history of the slave trade in England or the political, social and economic relationships of Northern Ireland.
