Friends of the AAIE

Director Hermann Weissgärber

Greeting from Vienna!

Most of you have either studied or led programs at the AAIE in Vienna and I dare to say that your study abroad experience has changed your lives or at least left a major impact. We at the AAIE believe in study abroad, in bringing people from different nations together. We are committed to learn from each other and trust that our programs are an important part of American Austrian bilateral relations.

In fact we see a lot of acknowledgement and recognizion from highest official side especially during our anniversary celebrations every 5 years. AAIE has been officially thanked for its work by the Austrian Federal President, several US Ambassadors to Austria, directors of IIE in New York and many more. This feedback shows us that we are on the right track and stresses how important our work is.

As AAIE is a privately run, non funded, non political organization it is not at all easy to fulfill our task. Financial hardship is a fact we have to deal with on a daily basis and AAIE in Vienna is also dependent on your support.

We need all of you FRIENDS of the AAIE!

In the name of the AAIE and future generations of American students I would like to thank you for your support.

Hermann Weissgärber
