Each year, one Hunter College student will receive substantial financial support to spend the academic year studying in Karlsruhe or two students will receive support for spending a semester in Karlsruhe. Please consult the department for details. The scholarship is sponsored by the Baden-Wuerttemberg Foundation.

Hunter alum Robert Bloom writes the following of his stay in Karlsruhe: “Die Fächerstadt is an extraordinary city and the perfect place to study German. Karlsruhe takes you away from the well-worn tourist routes and gives you front-row seats to the real Germany. Unlike Berlin and Munich, where you will struggle to convince locals to speak with you in German, Karlsruhe offers the elusive true immersion that is essential to becoming an expert on all things German. Despite falling off the radar of most foreigners, the city has no shortage of entertainment, with pretty much every type of food you could ever want, unique museums like the ZKM, and no shortage of nightlife. The proximity to Heidelberg, Baden-Baden, Strasbourg, and Switzerland offers a lot of great opportunities for weekend trips. I was uncertain whether I would like Karlsruhe before I went for a semester, and at the end, I wished I had stayed for a full year!”
