The American Slovenian Education Foundation (ASEF) was established in 2014 with the objective of enhancing American and Slovenian education activities and uniting Slovenian scholars and educators globally. The ASEF offers grant and endowment programmes, provides teaching and learning materials, and facilitate students and faculty exchange. The American Slovenian Education Foundation is based in Stanford, California, but aims to have branches in other states and countries as well.

Mission and cultural cooperation

The main mission of the ASEF is to build a bridge between academia and business excellency by linking promising students from Slovenia with university and industry mentors in the U.S. as well as doing the same for American students in Slovenia. Although Slovenia and the US are target countries, the foundation also seeks opportunities for American investors in Central and Eastern Europe countries.

In 2014 the foundation, together with Stanford University Computer Science, launched a summer internship program at Stanford University for students of the University of Ljubljana. Its goal is also to foster short cultural exchange programmes for students. One of the donors is also Slowind quintet from Ljubljana.
