Start planning for study away early. Whether you are planning a winter-term course, a summer, semester or full year away, students need to know what they can afford. Meet with the Off-Campus and International Study Office and Financial Aid to determine your best options. Talk to your parents or guardians to determine their support for your study away adventure. Deadlines to apply for programs and scholarships are usually early in the semester. The deadline for Franklin College scholarships to study abroad is March 1 of the previous academic year.
