  • post war exchange programs

    Anyone ever hear of these programs before?

    The only one that I know of was for German agriculture students that were sent to the US to study American farming.

    I'm sure there were others as well, anyone?
    My worst jump story:
    My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
    As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
    No lie.

    Established by the German government in 1972 as a tribute to the Marshall Plan rebuilding post-war Germany, the fund is an exchange program to foster trans-Atlantic partnerships in the spirit of the original plan. In addition to her fellowship with the Marshall Memorial fund, Kruse met independent wine grape growers in Champagne, France, and participated in the international conference on sustainability that was part of the SIMEI exhibition and trade show in Milan, Italy.
    Over the years yhere appear to have been a whole series of Marshall funded scholarships for exchange students between the USA and Germany and Austria. I believe the Austrian Marshall Institute still runs some for technical and Manufacturing students.

        Interesting, then would it have still been part of the Marshall Plan?
