Coca-Cola Hellas, S&B, and DIAGEO are the American College of Greece’s latest partners in the International Internship & Study Abroad Program (IISAP), founded with the LIBRA Group.
“With our outstanding new partners joining stellar founding partner LIBRA in the International Internship & Study Abroad Program, we expect to be able to place more than 30 students this year, well on our way to our goal of offering 100 talented students this amazing opportunity,” says ACG President David G. Horner.
DEREE students are eligible to participate in the innovative program that enables highly qualified young men and women to spend a semester abroad in the US or UK studying at a partner institution followed (or proceeded) by a five-month internship at an international company. Twenty-six students participated in IISAP in its first two years and have travelled to eight cities in five countries on three continents. Their projects have focused on a variety of fields including communications, information technology, real-estate management, renewable energy, finance, financial research, and hospitality.
The Program, begun with founding partner the LIBRA Group, now counts Coca-Cola, S&B, DIAGEO, and Johnson & Johnson (the last offers semester abroad scholarships) as partners.
