The American College of Greece (ACG) is pleased to announce the establishment of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Scholarship Program. Made possible by an exclusive grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, the program will support high academic performing, Greek public university students who are accepted into the ACG – DEREE Parallel Studies program.

“We are grateful to the Stavros Niarchos Foundation for this generous grant that will allow us to serve larger numbers of talented and deserving Parallel Study students who seek exposure to a US-modeled education and all the benefits that come with it,” said ACG President Dr. David G Horner.

John Zervakis, Chief Operating Officer of the SNF office in Athens, stated “The grant to DEREE is part of the Foundation’s ‘Recharging the Youth’ initiative, which aims to help create new opportunities for Greece’s younger generations. The scholarship program will provide academically qualified students, lacking the financial means, the opportunity to further their studies at a first rate institution.”

The Parallel Studies Program at ACG offers students a unique opportunity to enroll in US-accredited and EU-validated programs at DEREE, while concurrently pursuing a Greek state university degree. With the SNF grant, this successful program will be expanded and enhanced resulting in more students broadening their educational experience and equipping themselves with tools to launch meaningful careers. Read more…
