A partnership that supports your internationalization efforts

What are the biggest challenges facing your institution to reach its international goals?

  • We want a partner who understands our academic needs and goals.
  • We don’t have the resources to make the local and cultural connections.
  • We require reliable in-country support, advice, and expertise.
  • Our students need financial and personal support.
  • We want to add new semester and summer programs with courses in English.
  • Something else or all of the above?

We are here to help and invite your institution to become an ESC affiliated partner!

Benefits for your students

Students from affiliated partners are eligible to receive grant funds:

  • $300 for a semester program
  • $150 for a summer program

Merit and need-based scholarships are made available for students who qualify.

Benefits for your institution


We help open doors for international collaboration opportunities through our professional connections to colleges and universities throughout North America and Europe and extensive knowledge of the various higher education systems.

Faculty Development

Leading a group of students abroad and teaching at the ESC is a professionally rewarding experience. We are proud of our dedicated and knowledgeable faculty and encourage faculty from affilated partners to benefit from that development opportunity.

Marketing Support

To help you promote study abroad on your campus, we provide you with regular updates and a supply of program brochures. Besides, we are ready to support your promotional efforts with flyers, table banners, posters, and / or the attendance of a ESC representative at your study abroad fair. Talk with us about your ideas!

Students from many different universities have studied abroad at our European Study Centers in Strasbourg, France and/or Heidelberg, Germany:
