German Friendly Society Scholarship

The German Friendly Society of Charleston was founded in 1766 in Charleston, SC, for the purpose of friendship and providing for the needs of families of German descent. The Society, located at 29 Chalmers Street, continues today as a benevolent historical organization. It has developed this scholarship to encourage the study and appreciation of the German language and culture. The scholarship is available for study in Germany. The scholarship is open to all students, regardless of major, provided that they will be studying in Germany on a program sponsored by an accredited agency, or school, or will be on an approved College of Charleston independent study program. Preference will be given to students who have completed at least one year of German and who are from the Tri-County area. The recipient will submit a report about her/his travels to the German Friendly Society and the German Program.
