Limited to a total of 18 KSU students as a short-term, faculty-led study abroad, this generously grant-funded program is especially for learners who are not yet ready for independent international travel. Anchored at the European Academy in Otzenhausen, the program introduces topics of general interest to KSU students who will meet scholars, community leaders, and students from 3 German universities to explore current issues across cultures. Sessions will be in English. Successful participants will earn 3 KSU course credits (tuition not covered by grant) and a certificate from the Academy (a nice resume entry!); program cost for traveling students is approx. $ 1,950 (without airfare and tuition) and will be supported with $2,500/each for a total of 18 students - so apply early. Open to all students regardless of major and language skill.
