Deree–ACG Peers

The Office of Outreach is now accepting applications from Deree – The American College of Greece students for the 2022 Heritage Greece Program!

Heritage Greece is an educational program designed to enable Greek American and Greek Canadian college students to immerse themselves in Greek language and culture, while connecting with their Hellenic ancestry. For Deree – The American College of Greece students, this program is an opportunity to view ethnic identity from the perspective of Greek American and Greek Canadian peers and facilitate their interactions with the local community in Greece.

This year’s Program will take place in two sessions, as follows:
Session A Dates: June 9-26, 2022
Session B Dates: June 30- July 17, 2022
Participants can apply to join one or both of the sessions.

You will have the opportunity to learn with and from Greek American and Greek Canadian participants while:

  • Exploring Athenian life and helping our guests communicate in everyday situations
  • Touring important archaeological and cultural sites
  • Experiencing Greece beyond Athens
  • Developing team leadership and organizational skills

Participants in this exciting program receive a €1,000 scholarship towards tuition for outbound study abroad to one of our exchange universities, in addition to the following:

  • A comprehensive educational and cultural experience
  • Multiple guided field trips within Attica and beyond
  • Meals and transportation

Deree students who have participated in previous Heritage Greece sessions are welcome to apply again. However, the scholarship will not be re-offered to these students, as there is only one scholarship available per student. This unique program has been developed by the National Hellenic Society and is hosted by Deree – The American College of Greece.

Applicants must be fluent in the Greek language, and must be available for the entire duration of the Heritage Greece Session in which they participate.
