Dietrich Fellowship

In 2019, Concordia Language Villages partnered with David Dietrich Oprava, a three-time credit villager and eight-year staff member at Waldsee, the German Language Village, to create the Dietrich Fellowship. Inspired by the experiences of Dietrich, and his dedication to travel, learning and service, this Fellowship hopes to inspire staff members who have proven themselves as leaders to take the next step in their personal and professional development. By giving them the opportunity to explore the entire world, the insight they will gain, the experiences they will have, and the skills they will learn will benefit not only the Villages, but also ideally the world as a whole.

The Fellowship is an annual merit-based $25,000 award given to a current staff member of Concordia Language Villages who has shown an exceptional dedication to global citizenry and language education and is a passionate, compassionate leader of others.
