Professional Development Scholarships

The Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures offers Professional Development Scholarships to qualified undergraduates who are enrolled full-time at KU and have declared a German major or minor. The awards aim to assist students pursuing educational opportunities such as internships, study abroad programs, research projects, conference attendance, conference presentations, and service programs. Grants are available for $250 and $500.

The Undergraduate Studies Committee will evaluate applications based on a student’s academic record, the extent to which the educational opportunity will enrich his or her academic experience, and financial need. The review committee will also consider the length of the internship, study abroad program, research or conference trip, or service project. German majors and minors may receive more than one Development Scholarship, but priority will be given to applicants who have not already received a grant.

Students may apply for a Development Scholarship if they are waiting to hear on their acceptance to a study abroad, internship, service program, or conference. Award checks will be held until the recipient confirms his or her placement or acceptance into a program.
