The U.S. Embassy in Athens is excited to announce the Future Leaders Exchange (FLEX) program! This program offers a scholarship opportunity for selected Greek students to travel to the United States for one year and stay with a host family, while attending an American high school.
For the school year 2019 – 2020, ten (10) scholarships will be offered to Greek students. The students are selected through a merit-based and cost-free competition open to those who meet the following criteria:
- They are studying at the 3rd Gymnasium or 1st Lyceum year and were born from January 1, 2002 to July 15, 2004.
- They have a Grade Point Average equal to, or better than, “good” (13.1/20).
- They have previously studied English and demonstrate English language ability at the time of registration.
- They are Greek citizens and are entitled to an international passport.
Interested parties can fill in the online application for the program available on the ais.americancouncils.org/flex website by February 19, 2019.
FLEX is funded exclusively by the U.S. Department of State and is organized by the non-profit organization American Councils for International Education.
