Subject: DAAD Undergraduate Scholarship 2014

Description:
DAAD Undergraduate Scholarship 2014  -  Deadline: January 31, 2014

Are you a SOPHOMORE or JUNIOR thinking about studying abroad in Germany next
year – in fall 2014 or spring 2015 or for the academic year?

Learn about the DAAD Undergraduate Scholarship, which provides a monthly
stipend of € 650 (approximately $897) for one to two semesters (four to ten
months) to help you meet the costs of studying in Germany. Over the last two
years 4 UMD students received this award!

Highly qualified undergraduate students are invited to apply for scholarships
funding study abroad in Germany. The goal of this program is to support study
abroad in Germany and at German universities. Preference will be given to
students whose programs are based at and organized by a German university.
Scholarships are available either for students taking part in an organized
study abroad program or for those planning an individual, student-designed
study abroad semester or year. The National Scholarships Office –

applicants.
