The Kennedy Institute maintains relationships with a number of departments across Europe that specialize in North American Studies. Each year around 50 spots are available for stays of 1-2 semesters. The universities to which you can apply differ slightly based on which disciplines you choose to study, as these contacts are supervised by the individual departments. LLLP/Erasmus Funding is available for exchanges with European Universities, and German citizens can additionally apply for “Auslands-BAFÖG”.
USA & Canada
A stay at a U.S. or Canadian institution can be facilitated and funded in multiple ways. The direct exchange program of the Freie Universität maintains contact with numerous universities in North America that offer spots for exchange students. Some of them even offer additional scholarships that you can apply for through the direct exchange program. You can also apply for external scholarships, such as the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) or "Auslands-BAföG" (German citizens only).
Please note that our partner universities and the exchange placements available can change slightly from year to year.
