Dr. Dimitris Andreou, Vice President of Enrollment and Administration, recently spoke to the leading Greek newspaper Naftemporiki about the effects of the financial crisis on the youth’s educational prospects, and the role Deree has played in addressing the issue as a non-profit educational institution in Greece.
Journalist Sofia Emmanouil interviewed Dr. Andreou along with ACT’s Director of Admissions, Roula Lempetli, about the noted rise of need for financial assistance among the young generation. The article discusses how Greece’s two private, non-profit educational institutions offer equal access to quality education through scholarship programs.
Due to the ongoing economic crisis, countless families have seen their income substantially cut, resulting in more and more young people struggling to finance their education.
In response to this growing need, in the following year, 3.5 million euro will be offered to students through Deree’s extensive financial assistance program, which includes merit and need-based scholarships, academic and study abroad grants, paid internships, work-study placements, and more.
