Future Nobel Laureates Scholarship Program

Fueled by a common belief that in order to change the world you need to experience it, EF Study Abroad 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. Ten scholarship winners will be selected to attend this prestigious program and students of all backgrounds and from all over the world are encouraged to apply.

About the program

Led by distinguished international faculty leaders, scholarship recipients will tackle global challenges through action learning projects.
