The second year of implementation of the “Latsis Foundation Study Abroad Scholarships” Programme, a joint initiative of the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation and Deree – The American College of Greece, has been successfully completed. The Programme provides deserving undergraduate Parallel Studies students (Deree students, who study in parallel at Greek Public Universities) and full-time undergraduate Deree students the opportunity to pursue scholarships that will enable them to travel and participate in study abroad programmes at renowned universities around the world during the summer or Fall/Spring semester. In this framework, scholars have the opportunity to enhance their academic experience, to acquire useful skills and to broaden their horizons and develop their role as global citizens through the multicultural nature of leading universities around the world.
“I consider this experience as an opportunity for personal development, which involves decision-making, budgeting, understanding my priorities, and evolving through facing challenges in a new country. I also learned to appreciate the uniqueness of each culture and realised how my own cultural background influences the way I perceive the world. It was a great opportunity for me to grow as a student, enhance my skill-set in a new environment and strengthen my abilities while enjoying a new level of self-confidence.”
