The Forum-Nexus Scholarship 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 a study abroad scholarship program for students attending a college or university in the U.S. or any other country.
