Student Exchange Between Germany and the United States
In cooperation with 30 partner clubs within our umbrella association, the German-American Women’s Club Munich co-sponsors the largest German-American student exchange program in Europe, which is financed solely through private donations.
Through the initiative of the Munich club and as a token of gratitude for the help of the Americans after the war, the first two American students came to study for one year at a German university in 1957. The home universities of those two Americans responded by offering scholarships to two German students.
From those modest beginnings, a student exchange program has developed as “A Bridge Over the Ocean”, in which many more than 2700 students from Germany and the USA have participated. To date, contracts with more than 20 partner universities in the USA have been signed to regulate the reciprocal student exchange. Among them is the University of Cincinnati, a partner city of Munich. Each year 30 German students go to the USA and 25 American students come to Germany.
During the academic year 2012/2013 three students from the USA are in Munich and three students from Munich are in the USA:
