Three Selected for German Fellowships

By Piper Staff

Chemical Engineering senior Nancy Ko has been selected as one of 75 people to participate in the 30th annual Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals, a yearlong, federally funded fellowship for study and work in Germany.

While in Germany, she will attend a two-month intensive German language course, study at a German university or professional school for four months and complete a five-month internship with a German company in her career field.

Alumna Faith Hall (DC’02) and graduate student Riley Ohlson (HNZ’13) have been named Robert Bosch Foundation Fellows. The fellowship program is designed to provide young American leaders with a yearlong professional exchange program in Germany and the European Union.

Following an intensive language instruction period in their hometowns, the fellows will spend the summer in Berlin receiving group language training. In September, they will begin a series of three professional seminars across Europe and two work assignments at leading German institutions.
