Seeking to broaden awareness of the opportunities for independent research that the Humboldt Foundation sponsors, American Friends organizes activities that encourage international contacts and collaboration among scholars across national lines, with a particular emphasis on German-American relations.
American Friends conducts a variety of activities designed to support international collaboration in research, to expand the circle of scholars familiar with the research programs of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, and to facilitate exchanges and social interaction among alumni of Foundation programs.
