Sponsor a Scholar

ASSIST offers all accepted Scholars a generous full tuition scholarship, including room and board at an American school for a year. But even with room and board covered, students’ families must still foot the cost of travel and personal expenses for a year abroad. That adds up quickly, and it’s just not feasible for the families of some students.

That’s why ASSIST established a sponsorship program to help.

For every $8,000 we raise, we can sponsor a student to accept an ASSIST scholarship—and tell them that their dream of studying abroad is about to come true.  ASSIST sponsorships cover the following:

Sponsorships also allow us to be sensitive to the local economy of the countries where we recruit our students. Families are asked to help fund their child’s year abroad, paying a family fee that covers the expenses of the ASSIST program. This includes our signature 4-day Orientation program, a highlight of every student’s year in the USA. Sponsorships allow us to discount the family program fee to reflect the local economy, while continuing to provide the same experience to all ASSIST Scholars.  

The sponsorship program began in 1991, and since then, many donors have collectively sponsored almost a thousand students. Each sponsor changes lives and opens doors of opportunity those students would never have had otherwise. We are grateful for the generosity of these donors who have impacted the lives of so many talented ASSIST Scholars.

We are currently seeking sponsorship support for students in the Class of 2019, when we will have opportunities to sponsor students from Africa, Asia and Europe. If you choose to fully sponsor a Scholar, you’ll be connected with your sponsoree so you can stay in touch and see how your gift is touching their life. Please contact Ashley Gosnell at Ashley@assist-inc.org if you would like to learn more about being a part of the sponsorship program.
