Princeton-Humboldt Exchange

This exchange allows up to six Ph.D.-seeking graduate students from each institution to study at the partner institution for one semester, or three for one academic year.  Students must be under the general supervision of a faculty member, or members, at the host institution.  The cap of six students in each direction includes two participants in the Ph.D. Net exchange with Princeton’s German Department.

Participants will enjoy all the rights and privileges of a full-time enrolled graduate student with the exception of teaching appointments which are not permitted through this exchange. There will be no tuition or fee exchange under this agreement. Princeton students remain on their regular University support and Humboldt students do not receive funding from Princeton. Students may apply for campus housing but it cannot be guaranteed.

Students must be nominated by their home institution by March 1st of each year. Nominees must complete the Nondegree application, including a clear plan of proposed study, a letter of recommendation from the home school adviser, a letter of support from host school faculty with whom student plans to work,  a CV, transcript and a copy of current passport. Admission is contingent upon final approval by the host institution.
