2015: Madison Nickel (University of Alberta, Augustana)


The CSSG 35th Anniversary Scholarship has impacted me in a few different ways. First, the Canadian Summer School in Germany was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The culture it exposes one to, is nothing like anyone would ever experience in any other setting. The fact that you stay with a carefully selected family makes all the difference in learning about German culture. Second, the scholarship, via CSSG, made it possible for me to be accepted as a Fremdsprachenassistent in Bavaria. Without CSSG I would have never had the language skills or the confidence to take part in the exchange. My 8-Month exchange as a Fremdsprachenassistent has been, so far, the greatest experience of my life. Without the CSSG 35th Anniversary Award, I may never have been able to afford CSSG and as a result, not take part in the exchange.
