Lindsey Schroth, a student at Marywood University, has earned a placement at a Fulbright Summer Institute in the U.K. She will study for six weeks at Cardiff, Bangor, and Aberystwyth Universities in one of the most prestigious and selective summer scholarship programs operating worldwide.

"Upon learning I received a place in the Wales summer institute program, I was overjoyed at the opportunity ahead of me with the Fulbright summer program," Ms. Schroth said. "I hope to gain knowledge of a new geography and people during my time in Wales. I also hope to academically immerse myself in the intellectually stimulating program that the Fulbright Summer Institute offers. I hope this work enables me to further learning in all aspects of my life."

Each year, the Fulbright Commission supports approximately 50 U.K. and U.S. undergraduate students to undertake demanding academic and cultural summer programs at leading institutions in the U.S. and U.K. respectively. Nearly 300,000 women and men from all over the world have participated in the global Fulbright Program. Of these alumni, approximately 15,000 U.K. nationals have studied in the U.S. and nearly 12,000 U.S. nationals have pursued educational exchanges in the U.K.
