Participants who successfully complete (for a grade):

  • 4 BFS courses, if you started at Penn before 2011;

graduate with at least a 3.4 GPA, and behave in a collegial manner, graduate as a Benjamin Franklin Scholar.

Students, whether they are BFS or not, and have completed at least 7 BFS courses (for a grade and at least a 3.0 average in those 7 courses) as well as a graded research project, will receive a BFS certificate. Research must be done for credit under the direction of a member of the Penn faculty; frequently this is completed as part of honors/distinction in the major.
