We are now accepting applications for the 2019 Benjamin Franklin Summer Institute at Purdue University


The Benjamin Franklin Transatlantic Fellows Initiative (BFTI) fosters relationships between young Europeans and Americans, and explores shared values.  The four-week program enables participants to learn about U.S. priorities such as support for democracy and civil society, increasing economic prosperity, and engaging youth in building a better world for the future

If you are between 16 and 18 years of age, we encourage you to submit an application.  See below the testimonials of three Spanish alumni who had the opportunity to participate in the 2013, 2014, and 2015 BFTIs, which also took place at Purdue University.
