On March 21st , students, parents, teachers, donors and friends gathered together during a reception at UNCC to honor the 27 recipients of scholarship from the German Language and Culture Foundation for the “Ein Sommer mit Goethe” program. Dr. Anabel Buchenau and her volunteers arranged a nice event, where the importance of the program and the support of the Foundation was pointed out and realized by all participants. The representatives of the donors, respectively WEIMA, Bosch Rexroth, Lutze, TESA, Kühne+Nagel, BDO, Elliott Davis, HHS 1971 and STEAG, proudly presented the Certificates of Scholarships to the recipients. For the first time, one student received a 2nd scholarship for a new project of UNCC added to the portfolio of fundable projects : a one week student/research collaborative project at the Wiesenthal Center in Vienna, Austria.
It was also a perfect opportunity for parents and students to talk to the donors as they strongly represent the international business in the greater Charlotte area. Some connections were established to have an opportunity for internships or future job opportunities.
Thank you, Dr. Buchenau and her team for making this event an unforgettable evening and another testimony for the impact of our Foundation on the international community.
