Exam season is looming but there’s great news for students aged 18 to 25 who haven’t yet finalised their summer travel plans.

BUNAC is offering twenty brand new Summer Camp USA Ambassador Scholarships, to help more young people from the UK to take part in this international exchange programme and promote cross-cultural understanding. The successful applicants will boost their CVs with a prestigious title, and enjoy a highly rewarding role while having the summer of a lifetime.

Scholarship winners will be awarded a bursary of £499 to cover the entire Summer Camp USA flights-included programme fee, enabling them to experience a unique slice of American culture and to share their insights on life in the UK, while working with children as a Camp Counsellor or Activity Specialist. The programme fee also includes pre-departure orientation, medical insurance, the US Embassy Visa Fee and full board and lodging at camp.

Candidates need to be available to travel to the USA by June 20th at the latest, have some experience working with children and be prepared to share updates throughout their summer by sending photos, videos and quotes to BUNAC.


Applicants for the 2019 Summer Camp USA Ambassador Scholarships simply need to answer three questions in around 150 words about why they are keen to learn about American culture and work at Summer Camp and what skills they hope to develop.

The deadline for applications is 15th April 2019.
