Verein der Freunde zur Förderung

der Universität Princeton

from Eridony at


We are the Princeton Alumni Association of Germany, officially known as the Verein der Freunde zur Förderung der Universität Princeton e. V.


We are registered under German law as a tax-exempt society dedicated to the promotion of German-American cultural exchange. (VRB 2506 Amtsgericht Wiesbaden). We pursue this goal by:

  • Supporting all activities at Princeton University that have to do with the study of German language, literature, history, and culture

  • Supporting the Princeton Summer Work Program, which arranges summer internships in Germany for Princeton students

  • Recruiting gifted German applicants, and other applicants based in Germany, to study at Princeton

The Princeton Verein is more than just an alumni association. Anyone in favor of promoting European-American friendship through the above-mentioned activities will be cordially welcomed as a member.
