FVCC offers a 12-week cultural and language immersion program in Venice, Italy. Applications are now available for the spring program, which begins January 13.

Applications are now available for FVCC’s Semester in Venice program. The cultural and language immersion program runs January 13 to April 1, 2018. To be eligible to participate, students must be admitted to FVCC, be at least 18 years old and demonstrate a 2.5 or higher grade point average. The program is open to students of all disciplines, and no prior knowledge of Italian is necessary.

The approximate cost to participate in the Semester in Venice program is $12,000, excluding tuition and fees for 18 credits. Included in the cost are roundtrip airfare between Kalispell and Venice, housing in Venice, a meal allowance, public transportation, museum and gallery entrance fees and more. The cost also covers a nine-day tour of Urbino, Assisi, Siena, Florence and beyond toward the end of the semester. Participants are responsible for booking their own flights between Kalispell and Venice.

A $1,000 deposit is due by October 31, 2017 and is non-refundable after that date. An additional payment of $7,500 is due by November 30, 2017 and is non-refundable after December 7, 2017.

Financial Aid is available for this program. Scholarships for qualifying full-time FVCC students are available from the Foundation at FVCC. Scholarships are made possible by generous donors who support the Semester in Venice program at the college’s annual Big Night fundraising event. Since the establishment of La Serenissima Scholarship Fund, nearly $100,000 has been awarded to 30 students to help cover costs of participating in the program.
