European Studies offers 26 places per option for students from Rhodes College and The University of the South: 13 per school, per option. Four further places (two per option) are prioritized for applicants from other institutions who are welcome to apply. In recent years students from other schools, including Belmont University, Davidson, Vanderbilt, the University of Virginia, Washington and Lee, and Millsaps have participated. The program is open to students of all disciplines in good academic and social standing.
The Application Packet is available electronically in the Online Portal for Off-Campus Study and in paper form in the Office of European Studies in Burrow Hall, lower level. The Application Deadline is February 1. (Places tend to be taken up rapidly, so students with a preference for one of the options are encouraged to apply as soon as possible).

• $300 deposit (refundable in the event of non-acceptance)
