Welcome, and welcome back! With the start of a new semester approaching, I wanted to take the opportunity to alert new and returning students to the many opportunities for studying and researching in Germany. The application process is often long, so it’s advisable even for first-year students to begin looking around for internships and study-abroad sojourns to any of the German-speaking countries.
A very good place to start is the Website of the German Academic Exchange Program, better known under its acronym “DAAD”. It has a special section dedicated to undergraduate research. Your advisors will also have information, and the faculty in German Studies will gladly assist you if you have any questions. Just apply!
