ASSIST provides opportunities for outstanding international scholars to attend and contribute to the finest American independent secondary schools in order to promote mutual understanding, cultural interchange, and a more peaceful world.

ASSIST does not discriminate, nor does it condone harassment, on the basis of gender, race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, disability, age, sexual orientation or any other basis proscribed by applicable policies or laws.

A goal of ASSIST is to create a worldwide circle of future leaders – friends who have come to know and respect one another and one another’s culture through sharing a year of study and living together.

We believe that connecting future American leaders with future leaders of other nations makes a substantial contribution to diminishing misunderstandings that so frequently occur across national boundaries, cultures, racial designations and religious beliefs. International outreach begins with individual relationships – relationships established through a year of academic and cultural immersion which are designed to affect peers, teachers, friends, family members and business associates for a lifetime.

Kazickas Family Foundation (KFF) and a US based non-profit organization ASSIST Inc (American Secondary Schools for International Students and Teachers) announced open call for for 2018–2019 academic year scholarships. Second years students of Lithuanian gymnasiums (10th graders) can apply. It is the 14th time when the competition is organized and supported by Kazickas Family Foundation (KFF) which gives three scholarships. Three more scholarships are awarded by ASSIST Inc and its mercenaries. At least six students will be sent to private schools in the United States, where they’ll study for a year. After a year abroad students are supposed to come back to Lithuania and continue their education here. Application deadline: Saturday, November 25, 2017
