Han Guo '09 has won a DAAD Undergraduate Scholarship for the 2007-2008 academic year. Deutscher Akademischer Autstausch Dienst, or German Academic Exchange Service, is a publicly-funded, independent organization of higher education institutions in Germany. Guo is one of 54 undergrads from 45 universities across the U.S. and Canada to be selected by a panel of higher education experts to receive the prestigious scholarship to study in Germany.
Guo, from Tianjin, China, is a Biochemistry and German major and economics minor. Next spring, he plans to go to Tuebingen University, in southern Germany. "Hopefully, I can take some biochemistry courses (I'm very interested in a plant physiology course) and certainly some German history and literature courses, all of which will be taught in German," says Guo.
Guo says he is hoping to work in a biochemistry lab during the spring semester and on into the summer.
