We are delighted to celebrate this great programme of transatlantic exchange and send the 2017 winners our warmest congratulations. The special relationship between the US and UK is built on a shared history, mutual trust, respect and understanding. It is enriched immensely by the thousands of individuals who have chosen to study abroad, gaining a rich understanding of another culture, undertaking a rigorous academic course and building lifelong friendships along the way.
