A Fulbright Idea

Are you a first or second year student who would rather spend three to six weeks this summer studying at a university in the U.K. and exploring Europe than catching Real Housewives re-runs? Apply for the Fulbright U.K. Summer Institute today!

Research. Study. Explore. Network. Travel! Spend three to six weeks this summer at a Fulbright U.K. Summer Institute.

Students may choose from nine different Institutes, across twelve host locations, including:

  • American Institute for Foreign Study Summer Institute – Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre
