The Second Semester of ‘Education Unites: From Camp to Campus’ has started at ACT

The spring I semester has begun and 22 new refugee students have been accepted into the ‘Education Unites: From Camp to Campus’ program at ACT.  This makes a total of 32 students enrolled in this scholarship program, organized by the U.S. Embassy in Athens, in collaboration with the American College of Thessaloniki – Anatolia College.

The beneficiaries of the program will attend preparatory English classes in various fields based on their previous knowledge and academic training, and fundamentally, they will have the opportunity to continue their education and acquire skills and credits that they will be able to use either in Greece or in any other country they move to in the future.

The students originate from a variety of countries such as Syria, Iraq, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Liberia, Kuwait, Palestine, Nepal, Liberia, Somalia, Morocco, and Iran.  This program has united these students through education.
