Would you like to spend two weeks in Paris during IAP?
MIT’s Global Studies and Languages invites undergraduates to apply for the January Scholars in France program. Eight students will be selected to experience two weeks of tutored immersion in the cultural life of Paris.
Airfare, lodging, guided tours, and field trips costs are covered by MIT.
Applications are open to MIT undergraduates who have completed French IV or above at MIT. Preference will be given to those with a demonstrated commitment to French Studies at MIT, French minors, and French concentrators. January Scholars is not an IAP subject, and there’s no credit or grade awarded.

MIT French instructor Sabine Levet and Paris-based tour guides will lead your exploration of major landmarks (like the Louvre), and give you a behind-the-scenes look at urban and cultural life. We will visit the backstage at Comédie-Française, see how Line #7 of the metro works, observe the machinery that operates the elevators at the Eiffel Tower, and meet the people who weave the tapestries at the Gobelins.
