Business and German Senior Heads to Germany on a Study Scholarship

Studying the principles and practices of the German corporate world within the framework of international business will be the focus for Carl Maerz, a senior international business, finance and German major, who was awarded a study scholarship from the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst, DAAD.

Maerz will be traveling to Berlin, Germany, during the next academic year to attend the Berlin School of Economics. The scholarship is awarded to highly qualified graduating seniors and graduate students of all disciplines to provide the opportunity to study in Germany. This scholarship will cover all of Maerzís expenses and monthly stipends for one academic year, ranging anywhere from 715 to 795 Euros.

The Berlin School of Economics is dedicated to meeting European needs for internationally oriented business and management education. Over 4,900 students from more than 60 countries are currently enrolled at the university.

The Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst (DAAD, or German Academic Exchange Service), is the German national agency for the support of international academic cooperation, especially through funding the exchange of students and faculty between Germany and other countries. The DAAD also represents the German higher education system abroad, promotes Germany as an academic and research destination, and helps build ties between institutions around the world.
