Attention freshmen and sophomores! The Fulbright Commission is now accepting applications for their summer institute programs.
Fulbright Summer Institute programs provide the opportunity for US undergraduates (aged over 18), with at least two years of undergraduate study left to complete, to come to the UK on a three, four, five or six week academic and cultural summer program.
The program provides round-trip airfare from the US to the UK, tuition and fees at the host university/institution, accommodation and meals, and in some cases a small daily allowance. You apply to one of nine participating UK universities. The deadline is February 26. To apply you must have at least two years of college left before graduation. Visit their website for more info.
Do you love writing? If you’re an avid reader of The Underground, well then of course you do. But wouldn’t that next work of written genius come a whole lot easier if you could immerse yourself in a beautiful and faraway locale steeped in rich literary history?
If so, then the new Cork Writers’ School Summer Program sounds like your cup of Irish Breakfast Tea.
Nestled in lovely Mitchelstown, Ireland in the idyllic County of Cork, the Cork Writers’ School offers budding writers the unique opportunity to dive into the timeless work of Cork’s many great poets, novelists, painters, and musicians while crafting works of their very own. Learn about paragons like Frank O’Connor, Gerald Griffin, Elizabeth Bowen and others from preeminent scholars before immersing yourself in creative writing workshops on the memoir, novels, poetry, and the short story. Write the work you’ve always wanted to under the guidance of distinguished facilitators, such as the award-winning playwright and memoirist John MacKenna; Leanne O’Sullivan, poet and winner of the 2010 Rooney Prize for Irish Literature; Nuala Ní Chonchúir, a writer of four renowned short story collections and the 2010 highly-praised novel, You; and James Joyce Award recipient Mary O’Donnell, an author, translator, and university instructor.
The Cork Writers’ School 2014 Summer Program will be held from July 21 to August 1, 2014. Don’t let this amazing opportunity pass you by! For more information, a full program agenda, and an application, visit the Cork Writers’ School website today at CorkWritersSchool.com.
