Spring / Summer German Study Abroad Scholarship (Nov 15 Application)

Spring / Summer German Study Abroad Scholarship – Deadline November 15th

*Note* Given the COVID Crisis, Delta Phi Alpha is enacting flexible policies to support students and programs. Should a study abroad program be cancelled, scholarship recipients will retain their scholarships for a future study abroad experience in the German-speaking world. We therefore encourage wide application among DPA members. 

Award Amounts: $1,500 (2) $500 (up to 5)
