An EF & Forum Scholarship Program

An EF & Forum Scholarship Program

Fueled by a common belief that in order to change the world you need to experience it, EF College Study and The Forum on Education Abroad have created a first-of-its-kind, high-impact student scholarship program, in collaboration with EF's educational partner the Nobel Prize Museum. This interdisciplinary program is dedicated to including students from diverse backgrounds, and future leaders from all over the world are invited to apply. Only 10 students will be selected to attend the prestigious program, and all applications are due May 5th, 2021.

During this fully-funded program, the selected students will participate in an online project-based course, travel to Sweden for an international field study, and attend sessions at the 2021 Nobel Week Dialogue: a collaborative event that brings some of the world's leading scientists, policy-makers, and thinkers together to explore scientific topics through a global lens. Led by distinguished international faculty-leaders, scholarship recipients will tackle global challenges through action learning projects (ALPs).
