US Summer School for State School Students
The programme is centred around a one-week summer school hosted by Yale University, where 64 students will have the opportunity to experience student life at a top US institution. Students will also attend two residential trips in London, both before and after the week in Yale to support them in making a high quality application to the US.
All costs – including travel and accommodation – for the programme will be met by the Sutton Trust.
The scheme is aimed at bright, committed young people who are seriously interested in studying in the US. We will be looking for candidates who meet the below criteria.
• Are in Year 12 in state schools or colleges
• Have achieved 8 or more A* or A grades at GCSE or equivalent
• Are from non-privileged homes with combined household incomes below £40,000 a year
• Have a strong reference from a teacher or advisor
• Hold UK citizenship
Application and deadline
Students will need to complete an online application form which must be supported by a teacher reference. The deadline for all student applications is Monday, 16th April. Further details about the application process, as well as the programme can be found on the Sutton Trust website: www.suttontrust.com/us-summer-school.
