The PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation is proud to offer Hellenic Birthright, a cultural and educational enrichment program that provides a life-changing opportunity to undergraduate students of Hellenic descentwho have never been to Greece. Offered in collaboration with the American College of Thessaloniki,Hellenic Birthright will allow a number of Greek American students (20 in 2015) to explore historically significant sites and experience the beauty of modern Greek life, while earning college credit toward their undergraduate degree.
When you support Hellenic Birthright, you are helping create an unforgettable experience for young people to connect with their heritage, strengthen their bond to their ancestral roots, and reinforce their identity as Greek Americans. When you donate to Hellenic Birthright, you become a sponsor that helps underwrite tuition, accommodations, excursions, and other related in-country experiences for twenty students. Participants are only responsible for their roundtrip airfare, health insurance, and incidentals. With the help of the Foundation and our generous donors, these students will have the opportunity to visit the cradle of civilization.
Donor opportunities include:
Founding Sponsor ($5,000)
Preserving Sponsor ($2,500)
Sustaining Sponsor ($1,000)
Supporting Sponsor (under $1,000)
Please review our brochure to see how your donation could make a difference in a student’s life. As a Founding Sponsor, your contribution will make it possible for a student to visit Greece for the very first time this summer. You will also receive permanent recognition on our website and acknowledgement in all related printed publicity. More importantly, you will have the gratitude of a student for giving him/her the opportunity of a lifetime.
Every donation helps financially deserving students fulfill their dreams of connecting to their ancestral roots. Your donation will have a tremendous impact on the cultural and educational development of Greek American youth.
