UCLA EAP Students Awarded DAAD Scholarships to Study in Germany for the 2002-2003 Academic Year
EAP students received prestigious award for study abroad in Germany.
Published: Thursday, May 23, 2002EAP is pleased to announce that 2 UCLA students received “edu.de” undergraduate scholarships from the Deutsche Akademisher Austauschdienst/German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) for the 2002-2003 Academic Year.
We are excited to congratulate Tawny Bauman and Nelson Huang on their successful applications! Tawny is a double major in Philosophy/German and Nelson is a double major in Engineering/German.
Of the near three hundred individual student applications, the DAAD was able to grant 50 scholarships for an academic year abroad, 13 for an academic semester abroad, and 25 scholarships for short-term trips to Germany for participation in a university summer or language course, internship, or to conduct independent research for a senior thesis. Selection committee members remarked that there were a great number of applicants who were highly qualified, and how unfortunate it was that so few students were able to receive scholarships. Many students fell right below the cut-off score, which reflects the high quality of this year’s applicant pool.
Successful applicants will receive a monthly stipend of approximately $550 to significantly defray living costs abroad as well as one-time allowances of approximately $1150 to assist with international travel and extra baggage expenses.
Applications for the DAAD are generally due near the beginning of March.
