US-UK Fulbright Commission Summer Institute
The US-UK Fulbright Commission Summer Institute provides the opportunity for US undergraduates to come to the UK on a three to six week academic and cultural summer programme (lenght of time depends on the selected Institute).
Participants in these programs 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.

- Be a current undergraduate student with a GPA of 3.7
- Be over age 18
- Have at least two years of undergraduate study left to complete (i.e. current second- or first-year students)
