Welcoming our first Fulbright Scholar – could you be next…?

Fri 23 September 2016

This week, we are delighted to welcome the very first recipient of the Fulbright-Trinity Laban Award in Music & Dance, which offers US citizens the chance to pursue postgraduate study at Trinity Laban.

Madison McGrew, a student from the University of South Florida, is studying on Trinity Laban’s world-renowned MSc in Dance Science.

When she learned that she had received the Fulbright Scholarship, Madison says “I was speechless! Sylvia Plath, Linus Pauling, James D. Watson…they were all Fulbrighters. And now I am one too? I cannot believe it!”

Madison is looking forward to studying in London, “a pulsating, centralized hub of culture and innovation”, has said that “nothing quite like Trinity Laban exists in the States”. She is also excited by being “surrounded by a diverse group of individuals all working toward the common goals”. You can read more from Madison on the Trinity Laban blog.

We are now inviting applications for the 2017/18 Fulbright Scholarship. The Fulbright-Trinity Laban Award in Music & Dance offers US citizens the opportunity to pursue a one-year Master’s degree (or the first year of a longer Master’s or Ph.D. degree program) in music or dance at Trinity Laban in London.

Applications close on 11 October 2016 at 5pm (Eastern Time) for US citizens. Candidates are required to complete two separate applications – one to the Fulbright Commission, and the other directly to Trinity Laban via UCAS Conservatoires– in order to be eligible for Trinity Laban’s UK Partnership award. To see the full application procedure, visit the Fulbright website and the Trinity Laban Website for further details.
