Are you a SOPHOMORE or JUNIOR thinking about studying abroad in Germany

Learn about the DAAD Undergraduate Scholarship, which provides a monthly

students are invited to apply for scholarships funding study abroad in
Germany. The goal of this program is to support study abroad in Germany

program or for those planning an individual, student-designed study abroad
