The US-UK Fulbright Commission would like to remind you that the deadline for the 2013 UK Summer Institutes is Friday 11 March 2013.
Fulbright UK Summer Institutes offer US undergraduates (aged 18+), with at least two years of undergraduate study left to complete, three-, four-, five- or six-week fully-funded academic and cultural enrichment programmes in the United Kingdom. There are nine Summer Institutes being run in 2013:
-AIFS Summer Institute at Shakespeare’s Globe, London -Durham University Summer Institute -King’s College London Summer Institute -Nottingham Trent University Summer Institute -Queen’s University Belfast Summer Institute -Scotland Summer Institute (NEW!) -University of Bristol Summer Institute (NEW!) -University of Exeter Summer Institute (NEW!) -Wales Summer Institute
Full details, selection criteria and application forms are available online: http://www.fulbright.org.uk/fulbright-awards/exchanges-to-the-uk/undergraduates
Application tips and FAQs:
-Application tips on Twitter (‘Twips’): @FulbrightAwards -Grey shaded boxes vs. text boxes on the application form: grey boxes on the application form are expandable and students should be able to fit a few phrases/sentences within those boxes to properly answer the questions; text boxes cannot expand and students’ answers should remain within the provided space -Previous travel outside the US: preference will be given to those who do not have extensive, recent experience in the UK; while experience in the UK won’t preclude selection, it is a disadvantage in this particular competition, however, a strong application wouldn’t prevent success — we encourage anyone eligible and interested to apply for these awards -Recommendation letters: students should be requesting that their recommendation letters be written on official letterhead of the school, business, or other organisation where possible.
