Biological Sciences | CAS International Programs and Education Abroad | Kent State University

Kent State’s Department of Biological Sciences “Destination Florence 2020” Program offers a unique opportunity for our majors (Biology, Environmental/Conservation, Zoology, etc.) from the Class of 2022 to follow a two-year track that will allow students to spend Spring semester 2020 studying in Florence, Italy. Now more than ever, students of biology are encouraged to study abroad in support of their academic and professional goals!

Applying to this exclusive and prestigious program makes it possible for students to take a series of sequenced courses for the following semesters: Fall 2018, Spring 2019, Fall 2019, that will allow them to participate in the Florence semester program in the Spring semester 2020. The courses that students take in each semester, prior to your Florence Semester, will keep them on track in their major. Students will enroll in these courses after meeting with their academic advisor.

Successful applicants to the BSCI "Destination Florence 2020" Program will receive scholarship money each semester (Fall 2018, Spring 2019, Fall 2019) if they maintain enrollment in this program. The total earned scholarship amount will be $500. This total amount will be awarded in a lump sum after enrolling in courses for Florence in the Spring 2020 semester.
