The Department of German at Georgetown University invites applications for our summer study abroad program in the historical city of Trier, Germany. The program is open to German learners of any institution who have completed at least one year (6 credits) of German. The 5-week program will run May 30-July 4, 2020. 

We are excited to announce that this year we are able to offer three scholarships of $2,000 each reserved for non-Georgetown students. These scholarships will be awarded to qualified program applicants on a first-come first-served basis. 

During the program, students take classes at the University of Trier, an institution with which Georgetown's Department of German has partnered for nearly half a century. Courses include Intensive Intermediate and Advanced German, Business German, and other upper-level courses, including a Service Learning Colloquium that combines working with clients of the Caritas, reflective engagement, and academic research. (Details on courses and the program can be found here: https://myguabroad.georgetown.edu/index.cfm?FuseAction=Programs.ViewProgramAngular&id=10107)

Courses are taught by Georgetown faculty and local instructors. In addition to classroom instruction, there are many opportunities to expand language abilities and cross-cultural knowledge. The program organizes regular excursions to Luxembourg, Heidelberg and other places of interest. Program participants have full access to the University of Trier's campus, and are also eligible and encouraged to join campus activities and organizations with local student activities. 

Interested students should contact Prof. Joe Cunningham at joe.cunningham@georgetown.edu with questions and for instructions on how to apply. The application deadline is February 1, 2020.
