The Greek America Foundation is pleased to announce rolling admission Semester in Athens Scholarships for study abroad at the Hellenic American University, a US-accredited institution with two campuses in Nashua, New Hampshire and Athens, Greece.
The Athens campus is located in the vibrant Kolonaki neighborhood. The university is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and credits are transferable to most North American schools. Students and their academic advisors are responsible for handling all transfers of credits.
Hellenic American University has two semester terms — September through December and January through May — and two summer terms — June and July. The scholarship is available for any of the aforementioned terms.

PLEASE NOTE: Admission is on a rolling basis. The deadline to apply for a scholarship depends on the term you select. Once you have checked HAU’s schedule and determined the term you wish to attend, please email email@example.com immediately to express your intent to apply for the scholarship.
Scholarships will provide a full semester of study abroad tuition in Athens, Greece worth up to 15 credits, or about $4000. As part of the scholarship, students will be expected to take two courses (6 credits) related to Greek culture, history or language.
Room, board and travel to Greece is not included in the scholarship.
The purpose of the scholarship is to support growth and transformation through a study abroad experience in Greece and to promote understanding across Greek and American cultures. Greek heritage is not required — just a desire to learn more about contemporary Greece and its rich culture and history.
Hellenic American University’s mission is to provide quality, American higher education that is interdisciplinary, career-relevant and interculturally informed. It strives to educate its students to be global citizens who are solidly grounded in the liberal arts and equipped to contribute to the economic and social development of their communities.
Semester in Athens scholarships comprise one of the main pillars of activity of the Greek America Foundation.
Since 2010, dozens of students have been recipients of our scholarships for study abroad in Greece with more than $100,000 in grants awarded. Our alumni have reconnected with their heritage, pursued their academic goals, deepened their appreciation of Hellenism, made lifelong friendships and shared these experiences with their home communities.
Our commitment to study abroad in Greece has led to the establishment of an endowment fund for student scholarships so that this program can be sustained into perpetuity.
