Creighton Senior Awarded Scholarship to Germany
Catherine Homan, a Creighton University College of Arts and Science senior majoring in German and philosophy, was awarded a graduate scholarship to Germany by the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst, DAAD.
Homan will conduct research at the University of Freiburg on how the system of hermeneutics developed by German philosopher Hans-Georg Gadamer and the method of inter-subjective interpretation espoused by American philosopher Donald Davidson can be used to examine the relationship between art, truth and culture.
The DAAD 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 also provide Homan full financial support for one academic year.
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.
