Call for Applications: BA American Studies with Transatlantic Capstone Program and Project Year

Thanks to a very generous grant from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the Institute for American Studies at Universität Leipzig is able to offer two scholarships to select BA American Studies students to study at Ohio University during the 2010-2011 academic year. The scholarship will cover tuition, health insurance, air travel, and provide a sizable living stipend.

To apply, American Studies students must be in their second year of the BA American Studies program.
