How to Apply

European Studies offers 26 places per option for students from Rhodes College and the University of the South (Sewanee): 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 Davidson College, Vanderbilt University, the University of Virginia, Washington and Lee University, and Millsaps College have participated. The program is open to students of all disciplines in good academic and social standing. 

The Application Deadline is January 31. (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).
