The American Institute For Foreign Study, a leading study abroad organization, is pleased to announce that its Shakespeare’s Globe Education Theater Program has been selected by the Fulbright Commission as one of their 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 programs and meals.

During the Shakespeare’s Globe Education Theater Program, students spend three weeks at Shakespeare’s historic Globe Theatre in London, where they have the unique opportunity to study intensively with actors, directors and other theater practitioners. The program runs from June 17 through July 5.

“We’re delighted that American students will have the opportunity to experience life in our exciting capital city,” said Michael Scott-Kline, Director of the Fulbright Program. “The American Institute For Foreign Study Summer Institute at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre will offer everything that we would hope for in a Fulbright exchange: a stimulating academic component, a rich and immersive cultural experience and an enthusiastic host.”

Students applying for the Fulbright award should submit their application materials directly to the Fulbright Commission. The application deadline is March 11.

The U.S.-U.K. Fulbright Commission offers special Summer Institutes for U.S. citizens to study in the U.K. These summer programs provide the opportunity for U.S. undergraduates (18 and older), with at least two years of undergraduate study left to complete, to go to the U.K. on a three-, four- or six-week academic cultural summer program.
