ASSE International Student Exchange Programs Indiana - Illinois Area
ASSE was established in 1976 as the American Scandinavian Student Exchange by the Swedish Government to organize student exchange programs between Sweden and the United States. Soon Denmark, Norway and Finland elected to participate. At present, ASSE works closely with the Canadian provincial education ministries and is approved by the Ministry of Education in New Zealand. ASSE maintains 38 offices in 31 countries and accommodates more than 30,000 high school age students and host families annually in its programs in the participating countries. Through volunteer host families, area represenatives, state and regional coordinators ASSE provides the opportunity for students to study on 10 month, semester, and three month programs. We also offer the opportunity for American students to study abroad on the same type of programs. ASSE also works closely with the Dept. of Education FLEX, CB and YES Scholorship programs. All of these opportunities to host students, or travel abroad make our world a much smaller place with a greater understanding of each other!
