The German Studies Program and Department of International Languages and Cultures have announced three awardees of the DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst) University Summer Course Grants for intensive German language learning in Germany this summer. The awardees are Maria Edwards ’18 (Tübingen), Emily McClung ’18 (Aachen), and Haley Lemens ’18 (Aachen).
Over the past several years, the German Studies Program has made a focused effort to encourage its students to apply for these stipends. This recent group of awardees brings the total number of awards in the last five years to ten. According to Laura McLary, international languages and cultures, the grant program provides an extra boost to students’ German language and culture learning.
The DAAD University Summer Grant Program is competitive and provides funding for a 3-4 week intensive language course and lodging and partial funding for the flight to Germany and incidental expenses. German studies faculty will begin recruiting junior German majors and minors to apply for the DAAD University Summer Course Grants early in the fall semester.
