“I was surprised about how similar the UK is to America, and I have learned a lot more about all the rich history of the UK.  I plan on either studying here for the whole University experience, or at least going on an exchange programme to study here for a while.”
Sean, Summer School participant 2009

Thank you so much for such a great experience.  I’m so grateful that I was chosen to take part in this summer school. I feel like a door has been opened offering me opportunities for me as a student, starting a life in the real world”.
Rebecca, Summer School participant 2009

"I thought that Scotland was a beautiful country and I'm really glad that I got to experience it.  I loved looking at the schools, because it is going to play a big part in helping me pick where I am going to apply". Samantha, Summer School participant 2011

9/11 UK Summer School 2013
Applications are now closed

Applications to the UK Summer School 2013 are now closed. Following a review of the financial commitments of the UK 9/11 Scholarships Fund this year’s Summer School will be the last organised as part of the Fund.  

The UK Summer School was made possible thanks to the generous donations from the World Trade Centre Disaster Fund and the UK toy manufacturer Merrythought Ltd.  The Summer School is organised by the British Council as part of the UK 9/11 Scholarships Fund.

In 2013 the British Council’s UK Summer School will give US teenagers the opportunity to experience the cultural and educational opportunities of the UK firsthand. Funded by the UK 9/11 Scholarship Fund, the programme is tailored for teenagers who endured the death or serious injury of a parent in the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Over the course of ten days, teens will be introduced to further and higher education opportunities in the UK through visits to colleges and universities.  Students are accompanied by highly experienced chaperones from the US and staff from the British Council are present to support the students at all times during the programme.

If you have any questions about the UK Summer School or the UK 9/11 Scholarships Fund, please contact us.
