The German Department offered a one-time travel scholarship in memory of Josh Brigham, a rising senior who died in Ann Arbor on July 24, 2015. He studied German in our classes to prepare for graduate school in Munich, and was a wonderfully engaged student and active community member who coached Special Olympics and various children’s sports activities.

In Josh’s honor, we awarded $500 toward the cost of the 2016 Max Kade Munich study tour to Hannah Kelley-Watkins. Hannah's passion is education. She’s building on her volunteer tutoring experience as she teaches English to teens in Poland this summer.
