The Sutton Trust has announced that its Summer Schools Programme is open for applications. The programme offers bright, state school students in Year 12 (or the equivalent in Scotland and Northern Ireland) from lower income families (generally, this will mean a household earning £45,000 or less) a taste of life at an American university. The programme, delivered in partnership with the US-UK Fulbright Commission, is centred on a one-week summer school featuring a wide range of activities in the US (in previous years this has been at either Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Yale University or Harvard). Introductory events and application support are also offered in the UK before and after the trip. The application deadline is 11.59pm on the 20th January 2019.
