Rising sophomores Eliana Lord, Robert Magee, and Jeremy Ward are each spending their summers attending a UK Fulbright Summer Institute, bringing USC’s total to four winners since the program began in 2010.
The US-UK Fulbright Commission offers US undergraduates the opportunity to take part in one of nine Summer Institutes in leading UK universities throughout England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Since 2010, the US-UK Fulbright Commission has partnered with top UK universities and other organizations to give US undergraduates the opportunity to study and experience culture in various regions of the UK. Participants in these programs get the opportunity to experience an exciting academic program at a highly regarded UK University, explore the culture, heritage and history of the UK, and develop their academic ability by improving presentation, research and communication skills. The US-UK Fulbright Commission gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the Michael W Louis Charitable Trust and the individual universities in making these summer institutes possible.
