In addition to receiving funding to support their participation in semester or academic year programs, students may also request funding for pre-program language immersion through the Goethe Institute, the herder Institute, or other approved organization. These programs range in duration (typically 3-4 weeks) and are intended to bolster linguistic skills and facilitate the transition into a new culture and surroundings. (NOTE: Students attending the University of Tuebingen will participate in intensive language study through the Deutsch-Kompakt as part of the orientation program at the university.)
