German Exchange and Fellowship Programs
Bard in Berlin Alumni/ae Spotlight
"As a first semester junior, I had the opportunity to study abroad through the Bard Abroad program in Berlin, Germany. With assistance from the Benjamin A. Gilman international scholarship program, I took my studies as a Theatre & Performance major to Bard College Berlin in Pankow and worked as an intern for TATWERK, a performance art theater in the heart of Kreuzberg. There I was exposed to various different forms of performance practice that enriched my theatre studies and expanded the bounds of what I thought was possible as a performer. The Gilman scholarship allowed me to take full advantage of my abroad experience by helping to alleviate financial restraints in order to take on an arts-based internship, immerse myself in artistic exhibitions and performances, and open up travel opportunities to other European cities like Amsterdam, Prague, and Florence."
