Nancy Has Been Awarded A Research Fellowship To Study In Berlin For 3 Months

We plan to live near the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin for 3 months.

We are going to Germany! It was just announced that Nancy has been awarded the DAAD - Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst - German Academic Exchange Service fellowship.

Lulu will receive a Research Stay for University Academics and Scientists. The fellowship will fund her research in Berlin from February to May of 2016. Germany will fund her stay. Florida State University honors her receiving this fellowship by raising her base salary $5000 per year. 

Nancy is considered a world expert in the field of School Library Media. She will draw on this expertise to help improve school library media in both countries. 

I will accompany Nancy to Berlin for the 3 months while she does her research there. We plan to have a house or apartment in Berlin with room for visitors. 

It is all moving so fast. We just booked our round trip flights on American Airlines. We will be flying from Tallahassee to Miami to Dusseldorf to Berlin. The total cost is a $238!  Long story - FF miles. 

While in Germany - Nancy will be visiting universities - schools - libraries - collecting data for her research.
