If you are a student between 16-18 years old and you are living in Alexandroupoli or in the wider region, you can apply for a scholarship to the Benjamin Franklin Transatlantic Fellows Summer Institute http://bftf.org/ in the U.S., June / July, 2019.
For more information and requests to participate, contact the U.S. Embassy in Athens at Athensamemb@state.gov
The Benjamin Franklin Transatlantic Fellowship (or BFTF for short) is a unique and exciting program initiated and funded by the U.S. Department of State, and hosted by Wake Forest University. As you enjoy your stay in the U.S. and explore American culture and politics you will learn about the opportunities and challenges of civil society. You will gain insight and the knowledge that, combined with your own experiences, will equip you well for leadership and activist roles. We have a web site that features orientation material, information on planning your trip, what you need to bring with you, pictures of the BFTF staff and other information you can use before you leave and after you return home.
