Liberal arts student Daniel Dwyer has been accepted to participate in the Baden Württemberg Stipendium Work Immersion Study Program (WISP) this summer in Germany.
The Baden Württemberg Stipendium Work Immersion Study Program, available to community college students, is a fully funded three-month work study immersion program that gives participants practical work experience, a chance to improve their German language skills, and exposure to the German culture.
A graduate of Whittier Vocational Technical High School in 2010, Dwyer first heard about this program from his professor, Joe Guy, and jumped at the opportunity. Dwyer is looking forward to traveling and being able to teach English to others. Dwyer says “the application process is very stressful, but in the end it was worth it.” Interested applicants must be attending a community college, have completed one semester of German language, complete an intensive application, and provide letters of recommendations.
Dwyer will leave for Radolfzell, Germany in June.
