The Sutton Trust is continuing its flagship US programme to give bright, state school students a taste of life at an American university. The programme, delivered in partnership with the US-UK Fulbright Commission, is centred on exploring US study, with a one week visit to the US and introductory events and application support in the UK before and after.
The programme provides participants with a wide range of activities to help them make the right decisions about American higher education.
The Sutton Trust covers all programme costs, including residential events, accommodation and travel.
To be eligible to apply applicants must:
- Currently be in Year 12 or equivalent (e.g. S5 in Scotland, Year 13 in Northern Ireland).
- Attend, and have always attended, a state-funded school or college (non-fee paying) in the UK
- Not hold US citizenship
- Be from a low- income family (generally, this will mean a household earning £45,000 or less)
- Be interested in US culture and higher education
Applications close at 11:59pm on Sunday 20th January 2019.
