In our commitment to principles of fairness and respect for all, Princeton’s German Department seeks to create a climate that is favorable to the free and open exchange of ideas, and reaches out as widely as possible in order to attract the best qualified individuals. We do not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, sex, sexual orientation, political views, gender identity or expression, religion, marital status, national or ethnic origin, disability, or veteran status. Under-represented students are eligible for additional scholarships on top of the five years of tuition and stipend support that we offer to all of our graduate students.
