Scholarship to Study Abroad
Full Scholarship to study for one year abroad in Germany!
This year Parkway North had its first recipient of the Congress-Bundestag (the German Parliament) Scholarship-Haleigh Balentine is in the state of Hessen learning first hand all about life in Germany and Europe. As a matter of fact, St. Louis had an all time high number of scholarship recipients this year; 7 young women and men from our community are taking advantage of this opportunity to become fluent in German and see the world from another perspective.
Your daughter or son could be eligible to study on the Congress-Bundestag Scholarship for High School Students. No previous knowledge of German is necessary! A student can apply for college, defer and take still advantage of this wonderful opportunity as a gap year.
As a Congress-Bundestag scholar, your exchange year will include:
· Placement with a carefully selected German host family
· Admission to a German high school
· Orientation programs in Washington D.C. and Germany
· Meetings with American and German government officials
· Cultural excursions to the German Bundestag and select German cities
· Supplementary language lessons upon arrival in your host community
On August 11th, NPR’s Don Marsh interviewed two returning St. Louis students to hear about their experiences on this incredible program. Tune in to hear more! http://www.stlpublicradio.org/programs/slota/archivedetail.php?date=’2011-08-11'
