The Fulbright U.K. Summer Institutes are three- and four-week programs for first- and second-year undergraduate students. Participants explore the culture, heritage, and history of the U.K. while experiencing higher education at a U.K. university. The Summer Institutes cover the majority of participant costs, including round-trip airfare from the U.S. to the U.K., tuition and fees at the host university/institution, accommodation and meals, and in some cases a small daily allowance.
