German exchange program accepting applications for study abroad
Freie Universität Berlin and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) are accepting applications for their six week intensive scholarship-supported summer seminar/internship program in Berlin for Intermediate German-speaking American journalism and communications students.
The first week of the program participants will take part in a seminar series to expand their academic understanding of the politics, society and culture of Germany, and the country's current social conditions and media scene. During the second week, students will go on excursions within Germany together with journalism students from the Independent States of the former Soviet Union. The final weeks consist of an intensive internship with a newspaper, magazine, radio station or PR firm in or near Berlin.
Selected applicants will be awarded a monthly stipend for the duration of their stay in Germany. DAAD will also provide health and accident insurance. Intercontinental travel is at the participants' expense.
The application deadline is January 31, 2011. Visit the DAAD website to learn about eligibility and application requirements.
