Think a summer working abroad in America at a summer camp sounds great?  How about getting the chance to go FOR FREE? And being able to say on your CV that you were a scholarship winner?

BUNAC are proud to introduce their new Summer Camp USA Ambassador Scholarships.

Our Summer Camp USA Ambassador Scholarship 2019 programme is now closed.

What is the Summer Camp USA Ambassador Scholarship?

Summer Camp USA is essentially a cultural exchange programme. UK participants experience a unique slice of American culture while at Camp, and in turn give their fellow Counsellors and Campers an insight into what British culture is like.

We want to encourage as many people as possible to take part in this cultural exchange, to share knowledge and understanding. We have started the Summer Camp USA Ambassador Scholarship to help more people take part in the programme.

While at camp you'll be promoting UK culture and understanding, while learning about American life. You'll then bring your newfound US knowledge back to the UK to share with friends, family and colleagues after your J1 exchange programme.

Successful applicants of the Summer Camp USA Ambassador Scholarship will be awarded a bursary of £499 to cover the price of the flights-included Summer Camp USA programme fee, if they are successfully placed at camp for summer 2019.
