Teens Hit Jackpot to Study at Top U.S. Universities (The Times)


Close to 40 British teenagers, many from lower-income families, have received financial aid through the Sutton Trust to attend Dartmouth and other universities in the United States, reports The Times.

“Two-thirds of the students are from households earning less than 25,000 pounds a year and a similar proportion will be the first in their families to go to university. They will attend institutions including Princeton, Yale, Harvard, Brown, Columbia and Dartmouth,” writes the Times.

The Sutton Trust launched its U.S. programme in 2012, cooperating with the U.S.-U.K. Fulbright Commission. As the trust’s website explains, “The programme aims to support highly talented low- and middle-income U.K. youngsters to apply for undergraduate study in America, and to act as a beacon to inspire other talented state school students.” Dartmouth has been connected with the trust’s work in the U.S. from its beginnings.
