Exchange to Germany

In an age of instant, global communication, Edward R. Murrow's famous phrase about the "last three feet" being essential in establishing personal bonds and forming trust between people and nations remains as true as ever. Simply put, there is no substitute for spending time in another country in order to understand its culture, customs, and way of life; in short, to get to know its people.

Transatlantic Encounters

German Program for Transatlantic Encounters (Transatlantic Program)

Through the German Program for Transatlantic Encounters, financial support is given to German-American cultural, educational, scientific and business projects seeking to encourage "human encounters."

Alumni Networking

Just because your exchange program has ended, doesn't mean your connection with new friends and with Germany is over--ganz im Gegenteil (on the contrary)! In addition to commercial social networking sites, there is Alumniportal Deutschland, a fully-featured, professional-and-social networking platform for all alumni of Germany-related programs. Alumni of programs run by organizations including DAAD, Alexander von Humboldt, and CBYX, will also find alumni communities.
