Nobel Week Dialogue: An EF & Forum Scholarship Program

A new, innovative, and fully-funded scholarship program developed by The Forum on Education Abroad and EF Education First.

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).

NIEA Statement:

We stand in solidarity with colleagues and students impacted by the violence they are experiencing at universities in Myanmar. We also recognize that colleagues and students in other parts of the world experience similar tragic violence and we call on the world media to bring more attention to these severe situations as well as to governments and global organizations to speak out in support of human rights in Myanmar and elsewhere.

There is a strong need for peaceful interventions and voices that serve to stand up for human rights and academic freedom. To that end, we wholeheartedly support the work of Scholars at Risk. SAR is working on this very challenging issue of political interference with higher education and violence against education communities on a daily basis. Similarly, the work of the Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack (GCPEA) is worthy of strong support.
