There are currently nine Summer Programs available: AIFS Summer Institute at Shakespeare's Globe, Durham University Summer Institute, King's College London Summer Institute, Queen's University Belfast Summer Institute, Scotland Summer Institute, University of Bristol Summer Institute, University of Exeter Summer Institute, and Wales Summer Institute.

Award Details

The Summer Institutes cover the majority of costs, including round trip airfare, tuition, accomodation, meals, and in some cases a daily allowance.
