For every donation made by an ASSIST Scholar, this donor will contribute $100 to ASSIST on your behalf!
 
This offer is only available until May 26th!
No amount is too small, start giving and support a future Scholar today!

Also good to know!
- Who exactly benefits from your donations and the extra $100 in Challenge funding you can help secure?
Future Scholars just like you. For many young people around the world, the costs of travel, school, and life in another country are too expensive - even with an ASSIST Scholarship awarded on the basis of merit.  The funds being raised with the Scholars Challenge will support future ASSIST Scholars accepted to the program but facing financial hardship.

- How do the Friends of ASSIST help young people like you and how does this work?

Donations from the Scholars Challenge and other fundraising activities are collected to support grants for additional financial aid based upon demonstrated need.  Once future ASSIST Scholars have been fully accepted to the ASSIST program, families facing financial challenges may apply to the Friends of ASSIST for supplemental financial assistance.  The Friends of ASSIST are an active registered charity under German law.

- How exactly will the funds be used?
The funds being raised with the Scholars Challenge support future ASSIST Scholars accepted to the program but facing financial hardship. They are awarded on the basis of a written application to the Friends of ASSIST and interviews with members of the Board of Directors of Friends of ASSIST.
