Fulbright US-UK Summer Institute

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, four, five or six 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.

Eligibility Criteria 


  • Be a U.S. Citizen with little or no travel experience in the U.K. or outside the U.S.
  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Plan to graduate in May 2019 or later (current freshmen or sophomores)
  • Have a GPA of at least 3.70


If you currently have a GPA of less than 3.7 but are predicted to have a GPA of 3.7 by the start of the Institute you are applying for then you are eligible to apply. However, an academic referee must support your claim in writing that your GPA is predicted to rise and this should be included with your application.

Applications will be available in late November 2016.
