Miami, June 2, 2015 - Allison Vergel, a senior in the School for Advanced Studies Class of 2015 will be heading to Germany this summer for an unbelievable opportunity. Allison has been chosen to participate in the 2015 Nacel Open Door Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Vocational Scholarship Program. Only 25 students in the United States were offered this special full scholarship to spend a year of their education after high school in Germany.The first two months of the experience are spent taking the German language in intensive courses followed by a placement with a German family and attendance at a German school.

The program is funded by the United States Congress and the German Bundestag and is designed in such a way as to integrate the participating student into German society as a German language speaker who is placed in an internship with a German company. The focus is on the “international experience” more than specific training in the student’s given fields of interest.

Allison has worked with Boston University to delay her admission there until the fall of 2016 so she may participate in this extraordinary opportunity.
