In the eyes of DAAD, the end of a funding period marks the beginning of a long-standing relationship with us. We aim to stay in touch with our alumni as well as help you get to know one another through a series of programs and activities. We also support you in setting up regional DAAD alumni clubs and other forms of networking opportunities.
Our alumni work in North America aims to:
- continue contacts between alumni themselves and between alumni and their German host universities and the DAAD;
- maintain professional, academic and personal ties with Germany by providing a regular information service;
- contribute to deepening and extending academic exchange between the alumni’s home country and the host country, thereby making a positive contribution to the internationalization of higher education;
- use the experience, knowledge and insights gained by alumni during their study and research stays in Germany to benefit the current generation of scholarship holders and others interested in studying in Germany in the future.
