Mankiewicz Coatings provides Study Abroad Award to support CofC German Studies Majors interning in Germany

Many thanks to CofC’s friends at Mankiewicz Coatings LLC, who donated a 2023 Study Abroad Award to support a German Studies major interning in Germany this summer. This year’s award recipient, Supply Chain Management and German Studies double major Shane Love ’25, will be headed to Berlin CofC’s Cultural Vistas Summer Internship Program to Germany this coming weekend, where he will be spending the month of May in an intensive language course at the Carl Duisberg Centrum Berlin and then interning in Supply Chain at Kronos Packaging Berlin in June and July. Today, Shane and German and Russian Studies Chair Dr. Koerner visited the Mankiewicz Coatings Plant on Daniel Island to thank them for their support and catch up with CofC German Studies major and Mankiewicz intern Julia Hancock ’25, who is loving her internship at the company!

Thank you Mankiewicz Coatings Team for supporting study abroad in Germany and mentoring our students and providing them with practical work experience at a fabulous German company here in Charleston!
