Valpo’s German program offers generous scholarships.

  • NEW SCHOLARSHIP: Josef Eberle Scholarships are awarded annually to three incoming German majors. Awardees may also have another major. The award is $2,500 per year and is renewable each year, doubling in the fourth and final year (for a total of $12,500 over four years), as long as the student makes regular progress in the German major and maintains a B- average in German and overall. This scholarship is added to existing financial aid and can be combined with the other Valpo scholarships for German students. Students who apply by March 1, 2024 will be notified of their status by March 22, 2024.

  • Valpo’s Henry and June Giebel Study Abroad Scholarships are available to all German majors and minors who study abroad in Germany for a semester or longer, as long as they have lived in the German House and maintain a B- average or higher. These scholarships are added to existing aid. They normally cover travel costs and additional expenses; they also cover housing costs on year-long programs. They can provide support as well for students before they go abroad and after they return.
  • The John and Dorothea Helms Endowed Scholarship is awarded every year to a student majoring in German ($1,000, one time only, normally in the first or second year). Students are nominated for these scholarships.
  • German House Residency Scholarships are available to German majors and minors who live in the German House while enrolled in a German course. They are added to existing aid.
  • Valpo German students may apply for other scholarships through entities such as the state of Baden-Württemberg and Delta Phi Alpha (the National German Honor Society). Valpo German faculty members advise students about applying for these scholarships when they become eligible.
