The Forum-Nexus Student Assistantship Program

At Forum-Nexus, we understand the great importance of an international education, but we are also mindful of the financial burden many students bear, which can be a prohibiting factor in their decision to study abroad.We are proud to offer study abroad scholarship opportunities for students attending a college or university in the U.S. or any other country. Students may earn a scholarship applicable to a Forum-Nexus program by participating in a student assistantship. An assistantship is a work-study opportunity in which a student can complete hours before, during, and after a Forum-Nexus summer program in exchange for a tuition-reduction scholarship.
