NHS Heritage America Program Application Deadline June 8

May 24, 2018

WASHINGTON, DC – This year, the Heritage America Program will take place in Washington, DC from July 18-21. The National Hellenic Society’s Washington, DC chapter, in collaboration with Manatos & Manatos- a leading public policy firm, has developed the Heritage America Program, a gift from the National Hellenic Society (NHS) to qualifying Greek American college students. This incredible program is in its third year and distills the salient features of the study abroad experience and delivers it on the local/regional level.

This unique and proprietary program reconnects college-aged Greek American students with their roots, heritage, culture and Hellenic identity through the prism of the American experience. Students learn little-known information about the rise of Greeks in America over the last 100 years. This program better enables these students to glean the elements contributed to our amalgamated Greek American culture that came from their Hellenic background and which came from the “American Way.”

The National Hellenic Society (NHS) is a non-profit foundation dedicated to preserving, celebrating, and disseminating Hellenic heritage in America, as well as a proud association of Greek American leaders, visionaries, and philanthropists. The NHS is committed to reconnecting the next generation of young Greek Americans to their Hellenic heritage and identity in relevant and meaningful ways to make a difference in their lives.

Candidates selected to participate in the Heritage America Program will benefit from this incredible opportunity to meet a who’s who of Greek American decision makers, business and civic leaders, and luminaries who will serve as future mentors and career guides for Heritage America alumni. Participants will see that the impact of their Heritage, culture, and identity is important to achieving success in life, on many levels.

The application deadline is June 8.More information is available online at: https://www.nationalhellenicsociety.org/heritage-america-2018.html.
