Nadine Russell, director of Global Learning at CPCC, and Daniela Weinert, discipline chair for the German Language at CPCC, participated in the program’s nationwide interview process. The duo were among four panelists charged with interviewing 16 students from the Carolinas to determine who would be among the 75 students from the U.S. to study for one year in Germany through the CBYX program. The program offers a fully paid scholarship. German language students can apply for it every year.
Among the 16 students interviewed, two attended CPCC. The students will find out in March if they are selected to participate in the program.
