Experience the Magnificence of Greece
Hellenic Birthright Application Now Available!



Hellenic Birthright, the cultural and educational enrichment program of the PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation, is now accepting applications for this unique study abroad program through March 27, 2015. If you are a college student of Hellenic descent who has never been to Greece apply today to participate in Hellenic Birthright. This summer's program takes place from June 19 through July 19, 2015.


Hellenic Birthright is a four-week program that enables students to experience the history, culture and everyday life of Greece. Offered in collaboration with the American College of Thessaloniki (ACT), the program includes a rigorous academic schedule combined with excursions throughout historic sites of Greece. Students will also earn three transferable college credits.


The PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation will sponsor and underwrite all program fees, accommodations, sightseeing, tuition and other related expenses for 20 students. Participants are only responsible for airfare, health insurance and incidentals. Applicants who do not qualify may also join the program at their own expense.



The words of Evanthia Arianas, who participated in the 2012 inaugural program, sum it up best: “I cannot even begin to express what a great experience Hellenic Birthright has been. From the moment my airplane landed in Thessaloniki, Greece, I felt nothing but excitement. This journey to Greece is definitely an experience of a lifetime.”


Join Evanthia and the many others who have participated in Hellenic Birthright by sending in your application before the March 27, 2015 deadline.
