2018 Grant Award: Marta Millar

Interning in the liaison office for the University of Freiburg and Eucorhas been a truly wonderful experience, and I have learned a lot through the many opportunities I have been exposed to while here at the German consulate general in New York. I have enjoyed using and improving my German skills in the work environment, as well as reconnecting with Uni-Freiburg, where I previously studied abroad. My work here has included promoting areas of research focus at Eucor such as precision medicine through event organization, and alumni development for Uni-Freiburg here in the UnitedStates. It was exciting to have the chance to get to know many Freiburg alumni, and even meet with and interview several impressive alumni for spotlights on Uni-Freiburg’s website. Most of all, I have enjoyed the up-close experience of fostering German-American relations and discovering the multitude of organizations here in the United States that focus on furthering this transatlantic partnership, because I feel that is has opened many doors for my future.
