“For me, the Sutton Trust programme was the catalyst that gave me the courage and resources to accomplish something that was just a dream. The programme has been invaluable, providing me with support, knowledge, experience, advice and encouragement.” – Gemma Collins (US Programme 2013)
Last week, the Sutton Trust held its annual US Programme pre-departure event to celebrate the achievements of the students who have been offered places and financial aid packages to study in America. The drinks reception brought together current students and their parents to celebrate the graduation of the seventh cohort of the US Programme, who are set to study in the US later this year.
75 students from across the UK have been offered places to study at top US universities this year, the most successful cohort in the seven-year history of the programme. They have been offered places and financial aid packages at 48 different institutions, including Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and Stanford. Since the launch of the programme, 414 students have gone on to study in the US, unlocking over $100m in financial aid.
The US Programme is delivered in partnership with the US-UK Fulbright Commission.
