Sutton Trust Programme Success

First year student Illango has won a place in the thirteenth cohort of the Sutton Trust US Programme, which is run in partnership with the US-UK Fulbright Commission. Entry to the programme is highly competitive and Illango was chosen from 1300 of the UK’s brightest students to be one of the 150 scholars.
The Sutton Trust US Programme allows academically talented under-resourced British students to explore US higher education and what it would be like to study at a top US university. 
As well as supporting students in their exploration, the programme takes all 150 students for a week-long visit to the US, visiting different campuses and giving the students a flavour of life stateside. 

Speaking of her achievements, Illango said:
“I am so privileged to be on this programme and be able to explore US universities, it is a dream come true.”

Before visiting the US this summer, the students will have attended a UK residential and virtual workshops to learn about US universities.
At the end of the summer, students on the programme will choose if they would like to continue to make applications to US universities alongside their UK applications. This second part of the programme includes admissions guidance from the Fulbright team, including university choices and support with applications and financial aid processes.

Across the last twelve cohorts, the Sutton Trust US Programme has supported almost 700 young people to take up offers at highly selective US universities after securing over $150 million in coveted scholarships.

As a registered charity that receives no government funding, all Sutton Trust activity, from running award-winning programmes, to producing agenda-setting research and influencing national policy, is only made possible by donations from generous supporters. Thank you to our family of supporters who continue to provide extraordinary support for the US Programme.
