Stephanie Heaney Garners DAAD Award

Stephanie Heaney ’04, a double major in German literature and international relations, received the prestigious DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst) award for study in Germany next year. The award is Germany’s equivalent to the United States’ Fulbright fellowship. Heaney will be studying at Humboldt University in East Berlin.

Heaney grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and spent a semester of high school in Germany in a town near Hanover, in the Hartz mountains. Last year she studied in Bonn. She is particularly interested in the literature and politics of modern Germany and is writing a thesis about the early twentieth-century German writer Erich Kessner. Heaney said she has several friends who had previously won DAAD scholarships and that the German department had encouraged her to apply for it. “I knew it was out there,” she said.

She plans to use her DAAD to investigate German immigration policy from the 1990s to the present. She is interested in looking at Germany’s policy regarding Turkish immigrants and the effect of the enlargement of the European Union on immigration policy.

Heaney hopes to have a career in the international arena and is considering international law or human rights. While pursuing her DAAD research she will also be “looking around at graduate schools to see where I want to go.”
