OCTOBER 18: HEIDELBERG GIVING DAY! 
On October 18, we invite all alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff, and Heidelberg friends, to give back and donate online in support of Universität Heidelberg. 

24 hours can make a difference!

On October 18, 1386, Universität Heidelberg officially opened its doors to the very first students. We want to remember and honor this significant historic date with an annual online fundraising drive.  You may choose from among three initiatives.

Be part of this year's HEIDELBERG GIVING DAY! 


Welcome to the

Heidelberg University Association

 Heidelberg University is one of the top-ranked institutions in the world of international science and scholarship. In August 2016, Heidelberg University was again named as the best German University by the international Academic ranking of World Universities (Shanghai Ranking).
 Throughout its history of over six centuries of higher education and innovative research, Germany’s oldest university has become an international symbol of outstanding academic excellence. Recently, Heidelberg University achieved top-level status in Germany’s Excellence Initiative competition. As one of the eleven universities chosen by a jury of international experts, Heidelberg University has been awarded additional funding to further advance its outstanding research programs.

    Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg is proud to welcome international students from 130 countries. It is one of the most popular German universities among foreign students. About 20 percent of graduates and undergraduates and some 35 percent of the doctoral students come from abroad. In recent years, the university appointed a third of its professors from outside Germany.
Heidelberg University enjoys strong and long standing ties with the United States. The first U.S. student enrolled in Heidelberg in 1793 from St. Louis. Its longest running student exchange program with the U.S., the American Junior Year at Heidelberg University, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2008.

    Research on both sides of the Atlantic has enjoyed advances from a wide variety of collaborative efforts and partnerships between scientists from Heidelberg University and its counterparts in the U.S. and Canada.
Heidelberg University’s U.S. presence, the Heidelberg University Association, supports the University’s strong transatlantic academic co-operative endeavors, and student and faculty exchanges, as well as the close ties between Heidelberg and its Alumni in North America.  Heidelberg University Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in New York City.
