The Sutton Trust was founded in 1997 by Sir Peter Lampl to improve social mobility through education. As well as being a think-tank, the Sutton Trust is a ‘do-tank,’ having funded over 200 programs, commissioned over 140 research studies and influenced Government education policy by pushing social mobility to the top of the political agenda.
The Sutton Trust is expanding its US program to give bright, state school students a taste of life at an American university. The program is centered on a one week summer school in the US, with one host campus being Yale University, with introductory events and application support in the UK before and after. The program provides participants with a wide range of activities to help them make the right decisions about American higher education and will be delivered in partnership with the US-UK Fulbright Commission with test preparation administered by CATES Tutoring.
