Welcome to ASSIST Slovakia

ASSIST became active in Slovakia to help young Slovak students currently in the 9th and 10th grade who would like to spend one year as exchange students in the United States as 10th or 11th graders. There are also very limited places for 12th graders and post-graduates.


Our work in Slovakia began in the 1994/95 academic year. Our first Slovak scholars distinguished themselves in their American independent schools, and to date, well over 100 Slovak students have studied in the States through ASSIST.


Please email Mrs. Katarina Krizkova, ASSIST Slovakia's Program Coordinator at katarina.krizkova@chcemstipko.sk to learn about upcoming in-person events. You may also visit the Slovakian website here: https://www.chcemstipko.sk

Virtual Information Sessions

Please email Ms. Katarina Krizkova at katarina.krizkova@chcemstipko.sk to learn about upcoming dates and to get your Zoom link for the meeting.

Financial Support for Slovak Scholars

American schools are generous in offering scholarships to ASSIST students. Throughout our time in Slovakia, ASSIST has identified sponsors to help students and their families pay for the cost of participating in the program. Many American donors have stepped forward to support deserving Scholars. To learn more, please contact our colleague Mrs. Katarina Krizková, at katarina.krizkova@chcemstipko.sk

Application Process for 2025/26 Scholarships

Together with our Slovak partner, Asociácia absolventov štipendijných programov, we invite scholars interested in study in the US to apply. The application process for scholarships for the 2025/26 school year will begin in early August, 2024. Once your application has been submitted, you will have access to a checklist listing additional required materials, like teacher recommendations and grade transcripts. We encourage you to check your applicant portal often to see the status of your materials. If successful, you may also be invited to take an English test and to interview in-person in Bratislava in January.

Scholarships are also offered to boarding schools in the UK through our colleagues of the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference (HMC).

To learn more, please contact our colleague at partner organization Asociácia absolventov štipendijných programov, Mrs. Katarina Krizková, at katarina.krizkova@chcemstipko.sk
