Sutton Trust US Programme

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

Forty-seven state school students from low and moderate-income backgrounds have won places to study at top US universities through the Sutton Trust US Programme.

The programme is delivered by the US-UK Fulbright Commission and the 47 students come from across the country.

They have won places at 33 different institutions, including Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and Columbia. Among them, Abbie Lambert from Durham has been offered a place and a financial aid package at Princeton, an Ivy League university in New Jersey. The daughter of a factory worker, she is in the first generation of her family to go to university.

The 47 students applied via the early admissions deadline. More students have applied through the regular January deadline and will find out if they have been successful later this spring.

The US Programme offers a week-long trip to the United States to visit a variety of universities and meet admissions officers. Students benefit from residential activities and receive support over several months before and after their US visit, covering admission tests, college choices and the application process.
