The US-UK Commission have announced three ways in which they are supporting students into postgraduate study in the US:
1. USA Grad School Day – London
- Date: 7 March (6pm-9pm) and October 2017 (TBC)
- Location: American School in London (1 Waverly Place, London, NW8 0NP)
- Cost: £10/person
The event provides students with an insider’s view of how to successfully navigate the US postgraduate admissions process. Fulbright advisers and experts in the field will cover a variety of topics: choosing the right programme; admissions exams; application components; and funding opportunities, including the Fulbright Awards for 2018-2019.
This bi-annual event is sponsored by the University of South Florida and Kaplan Test Prep and kindly hosted by the American School in London.
Registration: Students should register on www.fulbright.org.uk
2. Fulbright Scholarships for 2018-19 – For UK Citizens to Study in the USA
- Application deadline for UK Awards: 6 November 2017
Fulbright is the only organisation that offers scholarships for academic work in any subject, at any accredited US university. Each year, the Fulbright Commissions give Awards to approximately 20-25 UK postgraduates.
More than funding, the Awards offer scholars the opportunity to have a ‘transformative’ cultural and academic experience and provide unparalleled support both during and after their Fulbright year. Further information can be found on the Fulbright website.
3. Fulbright Advisory Service
The US-UK Fulbright Commission is funded by both governments to promote and facilitate educational exchange between the US and the UK. As part of the EducationUSA network of over 400 advising centres worldwide, Fulbright’s advising team is the UK’s official source of information on US higher education. Visit the Fulbright website for a step-by-step guide on applying to US universities, including a section specifically for advisers.
