Our partners are a select group of premier research universities from around the world.

Universities that become partners in the Academy are committed to excellence in education and research, and to the importance of international collaboration. They agree to make the Academy and its programs known to talented students who are interested in pursuing graduate or professional education in the United States and assist them in learning how the Academy can enhance their education.

In turn, Washington University is committed to having at least one Scholar from each university partner in residence at all times.

Partner Universities also provide their Scholar and Washington University’s Ambassadors with opportunities to visit at least annually during the time they are enrolled.
