The German studies program of the Department of International Languages and Cultures is pleased to announce three recipients of the German Academic Exchange Service’s (DAAD) summer language and culture course stipends. Caitlyn Hott ’21 and Elizabeth Reich ’21 are heading to Düsseldorf, Germany in June for four weeks of intensive German language and culture instruction. Maddy Smith ‘20 will participate in a four-week course in Augsburg, Germany.
During their participation in these intensive German courses, Caitlyn, Elizabeth, and Maddy will learn alongside students from all over the world and will take part in cultural learning activities. The University’s German studies program has been increasingly successful in promoting the DAAD’s summer stipends to students and supporting them in the application process. Over the last five years, nearly 80 percent of UP students who applied for the grants were awarded the summer stipends that pay for the course and much of the travel costs. Since 2015, twelve of the University’s German studies students have received these competitive grants.
