FAQ About IHE
1. When and how do I apply for the IHE?
The 2012 applications are due on October 12, 2012. Only freshmen, sophomores and juniors enrolled at Franklin College in the fall of 2012 can apply.
2. If I successfully complete the requirements of the IHE and receive a grade of 'B' in the spring seminar, am I guaranteed scholarship funds to study abroad?
Yes. We will be giving a minimum of $30,000 in scholarships every year. The amount you receive will be determined based on your need and that of the other applicants.
3. Can I use the funds for any travel program?
Scholarship funds must be used for an approved semester-long program. Approved programs all have an international studies or leadership focus. Students who are unable to get away for a semester, for instance, Education majors, can ask to use the scholarship funds for a minimum 10-week travel program.
4. If I don't get accepted into the IHE during my freshman year, can I apply in my sophomore year?
Yes. While the program is targeted toward freshmen, sophomores and juniors are encouraged to apply.
