There are three options for funding support:

1. The Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures

The Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures provides grants of up to $2,500. Undergraduate students who are currently (2017/18) or have been previously enrolled in advanced German courses (GRMN 301 and above, taught in German) are preferred, but no language experience is necessary. These grants may be used to defray program and travel costs. Please allow the review committee 10 business days to consider all applications. To apply, send an e-mail indicating your interest and intention to participate in Penn’s Berlin and Rotterdam summer abroad program, along with a list of German courses you have taken or are currently taking. Successful applicants will be asked to contribute to a blog about their experience on a departmental site and to participate in an informational event during the subsequent fall semester. Applications and any questions may be e-mailed to Program Director Simon Richter at srichter@sas.upenn.edu.

Applications are accepted through March 1, 2018.

Please allow the review committee ten business days to consider all applications. Questions may be e-mailed to Kleinman Center Deputy Director, Cory Colijn, at ccolijn@upenn.edu.
