Last year a student wrote, “As I walked quickly toward the exit of the Orsay Museum, pressed for time because of another appointment in a few minutes , a glance was enough to stop me. Before me in all its glory, was a sculpture that impressed me with its detail and strength. It’s called ‘Les Chasseurs d’Aigles.’ ”

MIT’s Global Studies and Languages invites undergraduates to apply for the January Scholars in France program. Ten 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. January Scholars is not an IAP subject, and there’s no credit or grade awarded.
Applications are open to MIT undergraduates who have completed French IV or above at MIT. The award will be based on a demonstrated commitment to French Studies at MIT. Preference will be given to French minors and concentrators.
MIT French instructor Sabine Levet and Paris-based tour guides will lead your explorations. You will discover both famous landmarks and hidden treasures.
