Mayflower is our second newest bilateral project and will take place for the third time in 2020. The project aims at fostering intercultural understanding between Switzerland and the USA & Canada by getting to know the country through the eyes of a local. Each year, 40 students in total from the University of St. Gallen and an exchange university in North America will have the chance to spend 10 days in each country. Our goal is to give foreign students an insight into Swiss life and on the other hand giving Swiss students an opportunity to get to know the lives of Northern American students. Last year we visited Montreal and it was a pleasure to visit the french speaking part of Canada!

The application period will start in February 2020. Get your application reminder by signing up to our Mayflower Mailing List.
