Since its founding in 1875, The American College of Greece (ACG) has provided assistance to students needing help in meeting their educational expenses, thereby enabling students with demonstrated ability and promise to access a quality education, regardless of their financial circumstances. Over €3.0 million in need- and merit-based scholarships and financial aid will be awarded in 2014-15. The College has expanded scholarship and financial support programs to ensure the affordability of an ACG education particularly in these challenging economic times. Financing a college education can be a daunting prospect. The College is committed to aiding students and their families in learning about the resources available through the College's financial aid programs and to assisting students and their families in finding ways to meet their educational expenses.
The Financial Assistance Program at ACG provides various levels of financial assistance based on need and/or academic achievement. The governing philosophy of our program is grounded in our belief that lack of funds should never prevent academically talented students from receiving a quality education. Funding for financial assistance originates from the College's own resources and from the generous contributions of donors.
DEREE students may qualify for private scholarships funded by generous donors to the College (endowed and expendable scholarships) as well as from the College's own resources (college scholarships). Eligibility for these scholarships is based on donor-specific criteria (e.g. geographical origin, academic interest and/or performance, co-curricular activities, etc.) and other criteria set by the College.
Scholarships are awarded in the discretion of the College and the Financial Assistance and Planning Office. Students who meet the eligibility requirements of a particular fund are not automatically entitled to a scholarship.
