Fulbright scholarships to study at Globe Theater

Jan 08, 2013

Stamford, Conn. — The American Institute For Foreign Study’s Shakespeare's Globe Education Theater Program has been selected by the Fulbright Commission as one of its prestigious Summer Institutes for the next three years.

Three Fulbright scholarship winners will attend AIFS' Shakespeare's Globe Education Theater Program each year from 2013 to 2015. Students who win the award will have the majority of their program costs covered including round-trip airfare, tuition and fees, accommodations, insurance, social program and meals.

On the Shakespeare's Globe Education Theater Program, students spend three weeks at Shakespeare's historic Globe Theater in London, where they study intensively with actors, directors and other theater practitioners. This year’s program runs from June 17 through July 5.

Students applying for the Fulbright award should submit their application materials directly to the Fulbright Commission. The application deadline is March 11. For more information, application criteria or to apply, visit aifsabroad.com/england/londonglobe/summer/fulbright.asp.

AIFS is one of seven college summer programs designated by the Fulbright Commission as Summer Institutes. The U.S.-U.K. Fulbright Commission offers special Summer Institutes for United States citizens to study in the United Kingdom. These summer programs provide the opportunity for US undergraduates (age 18 and older) with at least two years of undergraduate study left to complete to go to the UK on a three-, four- or six-week academic cultural summer program.

In addition to Shakespeare's Globe Education Theater Program, AIFS offers study abroad programs in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Botswana, Brazil, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Cuba, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Greece, India, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Peru, Russia, South Africa, Spain and Turkey. All AIFS programs are comprehensive and include housing, meals, transcripts, insurance and built-in cultural activities and excursions. Additional scholarships and financial aid are available.
