Two ACG Students Excel and Receive NESA Award

The American College of Greece would like to express its gratitude to Near East South Asia Council of Overseas Schools (NESA) for its long-standing relationship with ACG as well as for the establishment and continuous support of the NESA Scholarship at ACG.

Based on NESA’s mission and vision and in their effort to maximize learning, the trustees of the Near East South Asia Council of Overseas Schools established in 2001 the NESA Scholarship at ACG.


Mission

To maximize student learning, NESA serves member schools by facilitating sustainable and systemic school improvement based on the best practices of American and international education.

Vision

NESA will create dynamic, collaborative professional relationships that transcend current barriers and boundaries in order to maximize student learning in member schools.


 

The scholarship recognizes the longstanding relationship between NESA and The American College of Greece, and, in particular, honors the close friendship between former president of ACG, John S. Bailey, and the late Stanley Haas, former president of NESA and his wife, Mary Anne.

It is given for one academic year to one or more students entering or continuing at the College who originate from one of the countries served by the Near East South Asia Council of Overseas Schools.

These countries are: Bangladesh, Cyprus, Egypt, Greece, India, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Nepal, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Syria, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

Renewal of the award to the same recipient is possible.

This past year the scholarship was awarded to two DEREE students who are grateful for this great assistance:

Natalia Argyriou,

International Tourism & Hospitality Management, senior student, recipient for academic year 2014-2015

“Without doubt, this scholarship will play a key role in achieving my educational dreams. Because of your generosity, the financial burden placed on me to pursue my education will be reduced.”

Argurou

Aikaterini Ntouni,

English, junior student, recipient for academic year 2014-2015

“Apart from the economic aspect of the scholarship, I have also gotten motivation. As soon as I found out how important it is to be a promising student and be active in the student life at DEREE, I realized that I had an opportunity to achieve things that I probably would not have otherwise.”

"NESA is grateful for our long-standing relationship with the American College of Greece.   We see ourselves as partners with ACG in “…adding distinctive value to the lives of our students … through transformative teaching, scholarship and service”.
