CLEMSON — Clemson University Student Hanna Denney of Lexington received an undergraduate scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service, known in German as the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdients (DAAD).

Denney will live in Lüneburg, Germany, and take classes in German language, literature and conversation, as well as communications, politics and economics. She will travel throughout the country over the course of the year to meet with representatives from several companies to speak about workplace tensions between East and West Germans. Her research will take place in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

“After over a decade of wanting to live in Germany, I am unbelievably excited to finally be completely surrounded by the German language and culture. I am really looking forward to what this year will bring,” said Denney.

The German Academic Exchange Service, or DAAD, is the German national agency for the support of international academic cooperation. The DAAD offers programs and funding for students, faculty, researchers, and others in higher education providing financial support to over 55,000 individuals per year. DAAD also represents the German higher education system abroad, promoting Germany as an academic and research destination and establishes ties among institutions around the world.
