International Fellowships and Grants

Despite the department's small size, German majors and minors have achieved notable success in receiving national and international fellowships and grants.

Small Department, Consistent Success

Bowdoin German majors continue to be extremely successful candidates for teaching and research grants to Germany and Austria. An average of three to four seniors and recent graduates have won Fulbrights every year, more than fifty in the last fifteen years. They have also won Bundestag-Congress-Fellowships, Truman fellowships, and DAAD grants, as well as scholarships for summer study abroad and junior year abroad.
