Sarah Spaulding Awarded DAAD Grant to Tour Northern Germany

In June, Sarah Spaulding will travel through Germany on a ten-day trip that is sponsored by a DAAD grant and organized by University of Minnesota.  The first stop is Jena, where the 12 students will spend four days visiting Friedrich-Schiller-Universit├Ąt and Bauhaus-Universit├Ąt as well as Zeiss and Schott, manufacturers of lenses and glass.  After visiting Jena, the group will travel by train to Berlin where they will tour Germany’s federal legislative body, the Bundestag.  After three days in Berlin, the journey will end with a trip to Hamburg where the group will visit Schwerin’s Castle (the seat of the Landestag Mecklenburg-Vorpommern) and meet with the secretary of the energy commission to learn about environmental initiatives in Hamburg. 

Congratulations, Sarah!
