The German American Student Exchange Program
From the outset, the promotion of German-American friendship and maintenance of common values were the goals of this successful program that was founded in 1957 as an initiative of the German American Women's Club Munich.
Acting as cultural ambassadors during their year in a foreign country, the exchange students contribute to the development of understanding of the similarities and differences of their respective homelands.
The German American Women's Club Munich, together with 31 partner clubs in the Federation (Verband) of the German American Women's Clubs, VDAC, supports the German American Student Exchange Program. It is the largest private exchange program of its type in Germany.
To date, the cooperation of some 20 American and 20 German universities has made it possible for approximately 2700 students to spend a year in the USA or Germany studying at the university level.
Every year, over 50 American and German students study abroad. German students receive a scholarship from the American partner universities and American students receive a scholarship from the VDAC to finance their time in Germany.
