As it’s cold/freezing/wet/snowy here (delete as appropriate depending on when you read this!), I thought you might like to know about a competition being run by the US-UK Fulbright Commission. They are offering UK students the chance to go to the US for 4-5 week summer programmes. There’s only a small number of places available so I expect the competition for them will be fierce.
There are a number of programmes available which are open to undergraduates who will still have at least one year of university study left when they complete the programme in summer 2011 (there’s one for PhD students too if you are a postgrad reading this blog). The undergraduate programmes are on:
- Innovation and Economics
- Civic Activism
- Education in the 21st Century
- Environmental Stewardship
The competition for places is open now and closes on 25 February 2011. For full details of the application process, eligibility criteria and what is involved in the various programmes, visit the US-UK Fulbright Commission Summer Institutes website.
