Silent Auction

silent auction donation form

To commemorate our 50th Anniversary, National Student Exchange created the NSE Application Fee Award to support exchange-bound students in meeting the expense of the NSE application fee. The award provides financial support equivalent to the NSE student application fee (currently $150.00). It is intended to enhance the possibility of exchange for students who may find the application fee a barrier to participation.

We host our annual silent auction to supplement this scholarship fund. Please consider donating items yourself or partnering with your campus bookstore, local business, or other retailers.

Soliciting Donations

If you are soliciting donations from your campus bookstore and/or other retailers, please present this silent auction solicitation confirming NSE status as a non-profit organization. Donations may be tax deductible.
