Do you know a high school student who wants to spend a year abroad in Germany through a fully-funded Department of State Scholarship? CIEE is looking for motivated, curious leaders who are interested in spending a year abroad. Germany also has a tradition in Girl Scouting, so it's even possible to get involved while in Germany or provide a new and dynamic cultural perspective to their home troop during their time abroad.

Previous German language experience is not required!
