Two University of Nebraska-Lincoln students have been awarded fellowships from the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Diesnst to study in Germany next year.

Garrett Allen and Tanner Sorensen were participants in UNL's German studies department exchange program at Humboldt University in Berlin last year. Both students are from Omaha and will graduate May 4.

Allen, a philosophy major with a German minor, will work at Humboldt University next year. Although he won a scholarship as part of the fellowship, Allen has accepted another scholarship from the Berlin House of Representatives, which funds a year of study in a German university and is awarded to only 20 students a year.

Sorensen, a German major with Russian and Latin minors, will attend the University of Pottsdam, outside of Berlin, pursuing a master's in linguistics.
