BRUNSWICK, Maine -- For the sixth consecutive year, one or more Bowdoin College German majors has received a Teaching Fulbright grant. Continuing the tradition of grants for teaching in the Federal Republic of Germany is Karen Baur '97, of Dracut, Mass., who will be teaching English to high school students in Potsdam in the new state of Brandenburg. A regular dean's list student and a James Bowdoin scholar, Baur served as a volunteer in Brunswick's Mid-Coast Hospital in 1994-95-96, studied at the Tufts in T|bingen program in the Spring of 1996 and was teaching assistant for German 101 in Fall, 1996.

Breaking new ground for Bowdoin's German Department are Hiram Andrews '97 of S. Easton, Mass., and Katherine Snyder '97 of New York, N.Y., who have received Bowdoin's first Teaching Fulbrights to Austria and will be teaching in yet-to-be-determined locations in that country. Both are German/Government double majors who have appeared regularly on the dean's list and as James Bowdoin scholars.

Andrews, who received the Quinby Award in Theater and has participated on the Indoor Track Team, studied at the IES program in Vienna Austria in 1996-97.

Snyder, who has been a staff writer for Bowdoin's student newspaper, The Bowdoin Orient, and has served as a writing tutor at Bowdoin, studied at IES in Berlin in Fall of 1996.
