Call for Applications for the FLEX Program

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 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.
