Attention Greek-American High School Juniors:

Extended Application Deadline—April 1, 2007*

Apply for the opportunity to be one of 150 Greek-American high school students selected from all over the country to participate in AHEPAcademy, an intensive, academic and interactive program to be held on the campus of George Mason University outside Washington, DC from June 24-30, 2007.

Graduates of AHEPAcademy on Campus are eligible for further mentoring, access to a nationwide network of internships, and participation in continuing internet-based networking and learning opportunities throughout the end of high school, college, graduate school, and beyond. AHEPAcademy provides instruction and inspiration by prominent Greek-American and Philhellene instructors from the academic, professional, and public service fields across the United States.

AHEPAcademy is looking for exceptional Greek-American high school juniors with top grades (minimum 3.5/4.0 GPA or equivalent), who exemplify scholarship, leadership, character, participation in extracurricular activities, community service, and involvement in the Greek-American community to apply for selection in next summer’s AHEPAcademy on Campus program.

AHEPAcademy is sponsored by the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA) through its network of over 300 local Chapters across the United States. Each active AHEPA Chapter is eligible to sponsor one student for participation in this program next summer.  AHEPAcademy on Campus is conducted in cooperation with the American Hellenic Institute.

Interested Applicants should write to [email protected] to indicate their interest in applying for the program.  Please include your name and address, the name of your high school, the name of your local AHEPA Chapter, or the name of the Greek Orthodox Church that you attend if you do not know the name of your local AHEPA Chapter. You will receive an email from AHEPAcademy with instructions on who to contact and how to apply for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Applications for AHEPAcademy are now available. Completed applications must be submitted to your local Chapter no later than March 1, 2007. (Contact AHEPAcademy to see if your local AHEPA Chapter has extended its deadline for submitting applications to April 1, 2007.) Some AHEPA Chapters have yet to decide whether they are interested in sponsoring a student from their local communities for this summer’s program, so please contact AHEPAcademy at [email protected] and your local AHEPA Chapter to indicate your interest in applying as soon as possible.
