Dominican students studying (or who have recently graduated from) a university in the Dominican Republic can apply for the Global Dominican Academic Exchange (GDAE) program offered by our host organization, Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD). GDAE is a short-term academic and cultural exchange program hosted in in partnership with GFDD with various universities located throughout the United States.
GDAE introduces Dominican students to the American style of liberal arts education and encourages dialogue between Dominican students and their Dominican-American counterparts attending these institutions. The program promotes partnership and entrepreneurship initiatives which foster innovation and stimulate Dominican economic development and international understanding.
GDAE organizes a series of annual topic-specific events of short (maximum one to two weeks) duration in collaboration with international departments and the Dominican student organizations at a variety of universities in the United States.
Past exchanges include: Yale University, the National Dominican Student Conference at Harvard University, the University of Georgia School of Law, University of Pennsylvania, University of Washington School of Law, and Babson College.
