Georgetown University Flynn Memorial Scholarship

The Master of Arts in German and European Studies (MAGES) 
Program in the Walsh School of Foreign Service  at Georgetown University is actively recruiting for its Fall 2019 entering class.

MAGES is a professional, interdisciplinary MA program that offers students with strong foreign language skills and a deep affinity for Europe the opportunity to craft unique thematic or regional concentrations for their graduate studies. Our graduates pursue a wide variety of careers in the government, non-governmental and non-profit organizations, and the private sector. We have found that many of our top applicants come from liberal arts backgrounds and have completed substantial coursework in European languages. For students or recent graduates from your department who have interests in global business, governmental affairs, policy research, or international and transatlantic relations, this program could be an ideal complement to their undergraduate studies at Amherst College.

We are also pleased to announce the Flynn Memorial Scholarship, a full tuition scholarship that will be awarded to one student in the incoming MAGES class for the full two years of the program. This scholarship is named for Gregory Flynn, one of the founding faculty members of the BMW Center for German and European Studies. We are reaching out to you with the hope that you will nominate a promising candidate for this prestigious award.

Please use this link to submit your nomination by October 21, 2018.

                       “German Studies in the 21st Century: Present Pasts in Image and Narrative”

                                  (funded by the DAAD/German Academic Exchange Service)


We invite faculty to nominate undergraduate students for our Graduate School Experience workshop that will take place November 8-10, 2018. Offered with the generous assistance of the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst/German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), this workshop introduces talented undergraduate students to graduate education (M.A., Ph.D.) in German Studies. Roundtrip-airfare within North America, lodging and meals are provided for participants.

The dates of the workshop, November 8-10, carry a particular historical charge: the Night of the Broken Glass (Novemberpogrom) in 1938, the proclamation of the Weimar Republic in 1918, Hitler’s attempted coup-d’état in 1923 as well as the Fall of the Wall in 1989. Mindful of these events, the workshop will explore the theme of “Present Pasts” from a variety of perspectives ranging from the premodern to film studies, German-Jewish studies, contemporary literature and culture, and the environmental humanities. Participants will have the opportunity to attend five seminars led by University of Minnesota faculty, two panel discussions, a variety of social events, and they can explore the University’s research facilities. Current and past graduate students will talk about their experiences and prospects for academic and non-academic careers.

Application process:

Admission to the workshop is by faculty nomination. The nominator must e-mail the recommendation to gnsd@umn.edu and it must include:

1) The names and e-mail addresses for both the recommending faculty and the student
2) Specific information about the student’s potential for graduate studies

The priority deadline for applications is October 19, 2018 (closing date 10/25/18). Nominations and accompanying statement should be e-mailed to: gnsd@umn.edu. Please use the subject line: Graduate School Experience.
