Program Costs and FC Scholarships

Franklin College is committed to making study abroad a reality for as many students as possible. Franklin College has exchange partnerships with schools in several countries, including China, Norway, Spain, and Taiwan.

Students continue paying Franklin College tuition and can use all of their FC scholarships and grants. Students can use a portion of their FC scholarships and grants when using an ISEP program to study abroad. Students can also use all of their state and federal aid to study abroad.

By planning early, meeting with the Office of Global Education, as well as the Financial Aid Office, travel abroad can be easily worked into a budget. There are also several scholarships available for students that complete quality scholarship applications by March 1.

Additional information on individual scholarships is listed below. For complete details, please visit the Office of Global Education.
