GAPP is the largest bilateral student exchange program between the US and Germany. We foster intercultural understanding by offering students from all over the US and Germany the unique possibility to experience their host country from an insider's perspective and to form friendships and connections that last a life-time.
Long-term school partnerships between German and American secondary schools are the basis of every GAPP exchange. If you are interested in starting a school exchange with a German school, you will find information on how to find a GAPP partner school here.
About 9,000 American and German students annually pack their bags every year to visit their GAPP partner schools. Learn more about our short-term and long-term exchanges and find information on grant opportunities for the current exchange season.
There are now more than 350,000 GAPP alumni. Learn more about the impact GAPP has had on their lives by reading some of their individual GAPP stories and feel free to tell us about your own GAPP-experience!
