Baden-Württemberg/North Carolina Exchange Program

The Baden-Württemberg/North Carolina exchange program (BW/NC Program) is a multilateral cooperation between the nine universities in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg and the 16 public universities in the state of North Carolina in the USA. The program aims at facilitating the exchange of both students and researchers.

The partnership has existed since 1996 and is funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and Arts of Baden-Württemberg. The University of Mannheim is responsible for coordinating exchange activities on behalf of the universities in Baden-Württemberg and manages the nomination and selection of German students and researchers for the respective universities in North Carolina. On the US side, coordination is managed by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.

Every year, dozens of students and researchers from both sides of the Atlantic participate in this exciting exchange program and take advantage of its incredible variety of academic opportunities.
