The Madison-Freiburg Sister City Committee invites high school students
from the Madison area to apply for a scholarship to spend a semester
at a school in Freiburg. Students should have some knowledge of German
(two years is recommended) and an interest in learning more about Germany,
the German language, and the German people.
Because this is a student exchange program, the scholarship is designed
solely for students whose families are willing to host a high school
student from Freiburg for one academic semester.
To learn more about this program and request an application, please
contact Michael von Schneidemesser of the Madison-Freiburg Sister City
Committee at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
