Today's Scholars. Tomorrow's Leaders.

Welcome to ASSIST Sweden

 ASSIST Sweden was established to help young Swedish students currently in the 10th grade who would like to spend one year as exchange students in the United States as 11th graders. There are also some opportunities available to students entering the 10th and 12th grades and as postgraduate students.

Our work in Sweden began in the 1970/71 academic year. Our first Swedish scholars distinguished themselves in their American independent schools, and ultimately 261 Swedish students have studied in the States under our auspices.
