The Vanderbilt-Leipzig Collaboration is pleased to announce its partnership with the Max Kade Foundation to support the exchange of students and faculty between the universities. The Max Kade Foundation takes pride in participating and sponsoring various programs which encourage the exchange of academic ideas among universities and colleges in the United States and in German-speaking countries (www.maxkadefoundation.org). The foundation recently awarded the Vanderbilt-Leipzig research exchange program a grant to cover the travel and support of six undergraduate student exchanges, as well as two faculty exchanges per year. The students will travel to their respective university and join a research project under a senior supervisor. They will be engaged for ten weeks in the challenging and exciting scientific communities of each institution, while likewise being immersed in rich cultural experiences. During their exchange, the two faculty members will teach short courses which will introduce new technologies and research endeavors not available at the other university.
