The Gisela and Paul Estes Study Abroad Scholarship provides financial assistance to PSU students to participate in a credit-bearing study abroad program in a German-speaking country.  Believing that immersion in a different culture is a life-changing experience, the Donors wish is for PSU students to live in and experience a German-speaking culture and to further their own proficiency in speaking the German language.

Eligible students shall be in strong academic standing, according to the mini required for study abroad, and must be admitted to credit-bearing study abroad programs in a German-speaking country: Germany or Austria. The scholarship may be awarded for the traditional academic semesters, Winterim, or summer session as long as the program is credit-bearing.   Contact the Global Education Office for information on how to apply for this scholarship.
