Each fall, thanks to the generosity of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts (MWK), north American higher education professionals have the opportunity to apply to be chosen for the prestigious Baden-Württemberg (BW) Seminar on German-American educational exchange.
The seminar focuses on the German educational system, German-American academic equivalencies and student exchange between Germany and the U.S. Lectures and discussions are complemented by visits to primary, secondary and tertiary educational institutions.
In-country lodging, excursions, and most meals are covered by the German Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts. Chosen participants are responsible for their transportation to and from Germany. All skill levels are encouraged to apply, although generally preference has been given to those who have been in the field for several years. German-language ability is appreciated but not required.
