Since 1968, the Federation of German-American Clubs has sponsored an annual exchange that brings one German student to Hanover and invites one Dartmouth student to spend a full year at a German university. The student, selected by the Department of German Studies, must demonstrate sufficient proficiency in the language. A student can request from among a number German universities the one that is most suited to his or her interests and is then eligible to transfer a full year (nine credits) of exchange credit in most academic fields (not just German Studies) with the approval of the Committee on Off-Campus Activities (COCA). In addition to the obvious educational benefits, the exchange offers significant financial advantages.
Application Procedures and Deadlines: Prospective applicants should consult with the German Studies Department before the end of the previous fall term.
Students selected for the exchange will receive up to nine transfer credits for a full academic year or up to four transfer credits for a single semester, with the approval of the COCA.
The Dartmouth student funds cover the German student's room and board charge but receives a living allowance of 5,000 euros from the Federation. Because the exchange is an official Dartmouth program, financial aid is possible. Exchange fellows also often qualify for help with transportation expenses.
