United States of America
The B.A.E.F. Exchange Fellowship Program has been instrumental in instilling in the American and Belgian Fellows a deep respect and appreciation for the other's country and people. As a result a spirit of friendship and cooperation has permeated their dealings with each other in political or academic exchanges, in the arts and in the world of trade and economics.
Needless to say, this was one of Herbert Hoover's aims when he established the B.A.E.F. in 1920. It was his belief and hope that the common cause of higher education would continue and strengthen the warm friendship, that existed between Belgium and the United States at that time, as a result of the humanitarian aid provided by the Commission for Relief in Belgium (C.R.B.) during World War I.
