Abraham - Broad Exchange Program

Abraham - Broad Exchange Program

In 1945, some American soldiers were permitted to attend classes at Cambridge University in England after WWII. In 1954, one of those soldiers, Mr. Frank T. Abraham, had the pleasure of returning the favor by entertaining Professor C.D. Broad in Houston, TX. During his time in Houston,  Professor Broad became acquainted with Rice University, and through this connection the Abraham- Broad, formally C.D. Broad, Exchange Program was born. The program supports a one-year exchange between students at Rice University and Trinity College, University of Cambridge.
