Italy Honors Program

GHC Study Abroad in Montepulciano, Italy
How would you like to spend a month in Italy? And how would you like to take summer courses for credit during your stay? Kennesaw State University (KSU) has a consortium of summer classes in Montepulciano, Italy. Montepulciano is a beautiful hill town in Tuscany overlooking vineyards and olive groves. It is about 115 miles north of Rome and 80 miles south of Florence. Students who participate in the Montepulciano program live in apartments in the town and take two summer classes (six hours of credit) at classrooms in the town's newly renovated medieval fortress (La Fortezza). Students choose from a range of courses, with morning and afternoon sessions. Classes also take field trips to places such as Rome, Florence and Siena, with free time for students to travel on their own in Italy from Friday-Sunday. 
Georgia Highlands College will send a group of students (3.0 minimum GPA) to Montepulciano in the summer of 2017. Specific information on the 2017 Montepulicano summer program is not yet available. However, you can find some basic information about last year's program at the follow link:
Students interested in the Montepulicano program are encouraged to apply for the Gilman International Scholarship, a very generous federal scholarship. More information about the Gilman Scholarship can be found here:
