An International Exchange Opportunity for Greek High School Students

December 27, 2019

ATHENS – AFS Intercultural Programs’ Global Citizen Scholarship Program will give 50 high school students from Greece the opportunity to spend a semester on an international exchange, developing cross-cultural literacy and fluency.

The program, designed with students who would not otherwise have experiences abroad in mind, is now seeking applicants.

The opportunity for Greek high school students to participate in AFS Intercultural Programs’ Global Citizen Scholarship Program is part of a three-year pilot program supported by a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) announced in June 2019.

Education is one of the four primary pillars of SNF’s grant-making activity, of which a particular focus is promoting international collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and exchange of ideas.

“Education is not only about what goes on in the classroom, but also about the personal growth that occurs when young people encounter unfamiliar people and experiences, and the new ideas these carry with them,” said Taylor Glazebrook, SNF Communications Officer. “Early international exchange experiences often have profound effects on participants that prove transformative throughout their lives. SNF is proud to support AFS in making this possible for Greek students who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity.”
