While Emory offers many opportunities for undergraduate students to study abroad, it also is a destination for many international students seeking to study in America.

This year, three first-year students from the United Kingdom were accepted to Emory through the Sutton Trust program, which works with the US-UK Fulbright Commission to help high-achieving, lower-income students from the United Kingdom study abroad.

Olivier Niyibizi 21C and Rebecca Tinkler 21C are the first pair of Woodruff Scholars to come from the Sutton Trust program. A third Sutton Trust scholar arriving this year, Neil Tramsen 21C, received international financial aid to attend Emory, says Mark Butt, the associate dean of admission and international recruitment. Other Sutton Trust students at Emory include Woodruff Scholars Alida Haworth 18C, Kieren Helmn 19B, and Craig McHugh 20C, and international financial aid recipient Flora Allum 20C

“If Emory wants to be a global player and produce global leaders, having a global community on our campus is critical for our international scholars and American scholars alike,” Butt says. “We believe our American students benefi t from having conversations on campus they haven’t been able to have anywhere else.”
