German Institute applications call — The executive committee of the German Institute is pleased to announce the 2016 call for applications to support activities/endeavors related to German and/or Germany. For 2016, $2,500 is available. Because these funds are limited, an application is required and will be awarded on a competitive basis. Applications for the full amount of available funds most likely will not be supported in full. Applications are due Nov. 6. Awards will be announced no later than Dec. 1. Previously, the institute has funded enhancements to May Term trips to Germany, a forthcoming film festival, and subsidized student travel to Germany for study abroad. Full application details are available here.
