If you are looking for an international research experience, EuroScholars will be the program of your choice.

EuroScholars is an undergraduate research program, offering talented undergraduates from US and Canadian institutions the opportunity to do research for a semester or a year at some of the universities of the League of European Research Universities (LERU).

You will be part of an international research group, conducting research under supervision of a professor at LMU. The research is combined with a language and culture course and a European orientation program called the Midstay program (2-3 days) in a European city.

Year of Study in Munich

The Year of Study in Munich program was designed by Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon for third-year students of smaller liberal arts colleges, offering them the opportunity to study at LMU Munich for one year and to attend a German cultural program. The program, established 1972, was one of the first full-year programs of its kind in the Pacific Northwest and is accredited by the University of Munich.

Every year 2030 students from Lewis & Clark College, Northwestern University, Reed College, University of Puget Sound and other American institutions participate in the program.
