Hellenic Birthright: Selection of 20 Sponsored Students is Now Complete

20 Students Will Travel to Greece for the First Time

 

The PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation is proud to announce it has chosen the twenty lucky students who will be traveling to Greece for the first time this summer to participate in our Hellenic Birthright program.  The twenty sponsored students hail from across the United States and will be converging in Greece this June.  The five-week program takes place between June 17 and July 22, and promises to be an unforgettable journey for these deserving young men and women who have never before seen their ancestral homeland. 

 

Hellenic Birthright was first launched in 2012 with partner Anatolia College and their School of Higher Studies, The American College of Thessaloniki in northern Greece.  This cultural enrichment and educational program was created to offer a life-changing opportunity to Greek American youth—a chance to experience first-hand the land of their forefathers through uniquely tailored courses and group excursions blending the rich cultural tapestry of ancient and modern Greece. In addition to the experience of a lifetime, the sponsored students will also earn up to 4 transferable college credits while being taught by highly qualified faculty.

 

This year's Hellenic Birthright program promises to be an unforgettable journey as it was for the Foundation's inaugural group last summer.  The students' touching journal entries can be read at greekscholarships.net; they describe in moving detail the feelings and experiences of our 2012 participants.  This year, the Foundation will again be posting live updates directly from Greece throughout the five-week program.  Make sure to subscribe to our blog and like us on facebook.
