DFG Office North America

The United States and Canada hold a special position in the context of the increasing internationalisation of German research. No other region exerts a similar appeal on German scientists and researchers. Every year a large number of DFG fellowship and grant holders choose North American universities and research institutions for a research stay abroad.

In 2002, the DFG opened its first North America office in Washington, D.C.  A New York City office followed in 2007. The mission of both offices is to facilitate research cooperation between North America and Germany, and to support young German researchers on a DFG-fellowship during their stay.
