Drew Student, Alum Earn Grants to Study in Germany

Highly competitive scholarship funds summer experience.

September 2018 – A Drew University student and alumna studied in Germany during the summer, thanks to a highly competitive scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service.

Nina Campli C’20 took a four-week intensive German language class in Aachen and Faith Adogame C’18 took a four-week business communication class in Bayreuth. Campli is a junior who’s majoring in German and anthropology and Adogame graduated in May with a bachelor’s in business and minor in German.

Campli and Adogame received grants from the German Academic Exchange Service, known as the DAAD for its initials in German. The DAAD, which is funded by German government ministries, aims to teach German language and culture and build long-term relationships between students and Germany, said Peter Kerrigan, deputy director of the DAAD’s New York office.  

Adogame now teaches elementary-level children at the German Language School in Princeton and hopes to return to Germany to pursue a master’s in business administration.

Campli, who began studying German in high school, said of her summer experience: “Once I was speaking German on a regular basis, it clicked, and it turned out I knew more than I ever thought I did.”
