The US-UK Fulbright Commission offers special Summer Institutes for US citizens to come to the UK.  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 or four 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.

If you have any questions about the programme, please read our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

The US-UK Fulbright Commission gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the Michael W Louis Charitable Trust and the individual universities in making these summer institutes possible.

Summer Institutes available for US students:

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. Please read the Terms and Conditions for this award before making an application.

Once you have narrowed your program type and country choices, email the UH Fulbright Program Advisor, Dr. Ben Rayder, to schedule a one-on-one advising meeting. 

Applications are due on February 23 or 26, 2017. Please check the individual institute webpage for specific deadline. Carefully read the application instructions found in the 'Applying' tab on each webpage.
