The German American Partnership Program (GAPP) is the largest and most successful high school exchange program between the United States and Germany. Each year, around 12,000 students travel across the Atlantic to visit their partner schools and have life-changing experiences.
Schools interested in taking part in a GAPP exchange should start by completing an Application for a School Partnership, available on the GAPP website. Program administrators then assist with matching partner schools. Schools that have previously organized GAPP exchanges and plan to take a group to Germany in 2013 must return the program questionnaire to the New York office by November 12 in order to be e-mailed the grant application package in early December 2012.
