BFS students receive expert advising from faculty and staff who serve as BFS Academic Advisors within the student's home school, and who help students take advantage of all that BFS has to offer.
From summer research funding to internship funding, BFS has lots of opportunities for you.
Benjamin Franklin Seminars are the centerpiece of the Benjamin Franklin Scholars program. We have small classes (fewer than 20 students) that involve intensive discussion and investigation. Students and faculty jointly pursue deeper discoveries through discussion and investigation. Classes are designed to promote independent thinking and encourage curiosity about a breadth of topics.
The Ben Talk is a 6-8 minute video, posted to YouTube, that begins with the question: "What has been your most intriguing research discovery at Penn?"
We expect great things of you!
