In order to support our students who plan to enroll in study-abroad activities during the summer, the German Department is pleased to award several Friedman-Kline Foundation Fellowships:

Each program should be at least 6 weeks long and should contain some language study at the level most appropriate to each student. Preference will be given to students with serious plans to continue studying German at Northwestern upon return from their study abroad activity.

Scholarships range from $1000-$2000 and can be used to support anything from travel expenses to housing and tuition.  The online FELLOWSHIP APPLICATION is now open. Please use the link below. The deadline for applying is March 20, 2021 and the anticipated notification of recipients is March 31, 2021. Students with questions should speak directly with our Director of Undergraduate Studies or Study Abroad Advisor in German to find out whether a planned project would be appropriate for a fellowship.
