The recipient of this year’s stipend is a fifth year undergraduate student from USC.
Daniel Alvarado is studying German and Art History. He has completed his bachelor degree in Art History and intends to complete his German major after his semester in Berlin. He left for Berlin in early September first to take an intensive German course so he can follow the German taught lectures at the Institute for the International Education of Students (IES) as well as the Humboldt Universitaet. He is living in Kreuzberg.

Daniel is a first generation Mexican American. He is the oldest of 4 boys. He is financing his studies at USC with scholarships and financial aid. He has also worked while going to school. He is fluent in Spanish, proficient in Portuguese and so far has conversational German skills.

We consider Daniel a worthy recipient of our grant and look forward to his “Letters from Berlin”. While we will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the fall of the wall on Wilshire Boulevard he will be reporting on the festivities in Berlin.
