Welcome to the Waterloo Centre for German Studies
The Waterloo Centre for German Studies is a research institute at the University of Waterloo. Funded by private donations, the WCGS supports research into all aspects of the German-speaking world, and are committed to publicly-oriented scholarship. We facilitate the communication of German studies research, distribute awards to students wishing to study in Germany, and organize cultural programming for the university and wider communities.
