January Scholars is a program that brings MIT undergraduates to Paris for two weeks of cultural and linguistic immersion. The trip is led by MIT French instructional staff and Paris-based tour guides. Application to the program is announced annually, and is open to MIT undergraduates. Preference is given to French minors and concentrators and those with a demonstrated commitment to French Studies at MIT. January Scholars is not an IAP subject, and there’s no credit or grade awarded. Airfare, lodging, guided tours, and field trips costs are covered by MIT.
