Welcome to ASSIST Lithuania
ASSIST Lithuania was established to help young Lithuanian students currently in the 10th grade who would like to spend one year as exchange students in the United States as 11th graders.
Our work in the Baltics began in Lithuania in the 1992/93 academic year. Our first Lithuanian scholars distinguished themselves in their American independent schools, and ultimately 124 Lithuanian students have studied in the States under our auspices. It is through the generosity of the Kazickas Family Foundation that this competition is made possible.
New Financial Support for Lithuanian Scholars
American schools are generous in offering scholarships to ASSIST students. Throughout our time in Lithuania, ASSIST has identified sponsors to help students and their families pay for the cost of participating in the program. In addition to the Kazickas Family, Lithuanian alumni and American donors support deserving Scholars. Now the U.S. Embassy is also stepping forward to help fund students who would otherwise not be able to accept their scholarships.
Please read the "Family Financial Declaration" for more news about this generous offer.
