The Sutton Trust and the US-UK Fulbright Commission are inviting applications from bright students for this once-in-a-lifetime higher education experience in the USA.

We have over 200 alumni, accessing $50 million in funding from US universities. The Sutton Trust US Programme helps British state school students apply to American universities through support, advice and a one-week summer school in the USA. It is free to take part in the programme.

To be eligible, students must:

  • Be in Year 12 (England and Wales), S5 (Scotland) or Year 13 (Northern Ireland)
  • Attend a state school of college
  • Have excellent GCSEs or S4 qualifications
  • Not hold US citizenship

Applications are welcome from students who are:

  • Interested in US culture and higher education
  • From a low income family
  • In the first generation of their family to go to university

The student application deadline is 11:59 pm on 22 January 2017, and school references must be submitted by 11:59 pm, 24 January 2017.
