“After a highly successful two years, the Sutton Trust is expanding its US programme further to give bright, state school students a taste of life at an American university. The initiative is centred on a one-week summer school in the US with introductory events and application support in the UK before and after.”

“Harvard University, will be a host for the 2014 programme alongside MIT and Yale University. Successful students will take part in this unique opportunity to get a taste of US culture and higher education first hand and receive personalised support if they decide to apply for their undergraduate studies at an American university. The Sutton Trust will also provide other benefits to participants, such as covering costs for all residential events, accommodation and travel.”

Application deadline: 22 January 2014.
