Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and Arts cancels 2020 Baden-Württemberg Seminar

On May 13, 2020, the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and Arts (MWK), in consultation with AACRAO and NAFSA, made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Baden- Württemberg Seminar.

This decision was not made lightly. The MWK, AACRAO, and NAFSA feel that the health and safety of our colleagues is of primary importance, and that to encourage international travel at this time would not be prudent.

We also acknowledge that our institutional colleagues currently have many new and unique work challenges. Supporting students and faculty, while ensuring the smooth running of their institutions, must take precedence in these trying times.

Thanks to the generosity of the MWK, we look forward to resuming the “BW Seminar” in the Fall of 2021.

Application Process

  • Process

    An AACRAO/NAFSA review committee will evaluate applications in early July. AACRAO will notify finalists in late July.

  • Cost

    On-site costs for participants (lodging, most meals and transportation for excursions) will be covered by the Ministry. Participants or their institutions are responsible for the cost of transportation to and from Ulm, Germany.

  • Who should apply

    Study abroad officers, international student advisers, admissions officers, registrars, and others with responsibility for postsecondary-level exchanges.

    • Applicants must be a member of either AACRAO or NAFSA, or both.
    • No more than one application per institution should be submitted.
