An update on Summer Study in Athens

header-spring-2020-greeceFollowing the University/s announcement that all in-person summer abroad programs have been canceled, the organizers of the Summer Study in Athens asked that we share this announcement of their reconfigured plans for the summer 2020 program:

We know you are all wondering about this year’s Summer Study in Athens. As you may know, Boston University has now canceled summer study abroad programs. However, this will not keep you from experiencing Greek culture AND studying in Greece in 2021.We are planning a virtual Summer Study in 2020 that will help you visit Greece in 2021! To that end, we are planning to offer the following.

  1. An online course or courses in Greek culture THIS SUMMER that can be transferred to Boston University (and for which scholarships will be available: see below).
  2. Anyone who takes and passes the online course(s) offered will be guaranteed admission and a scholarship to next years (2021) Summer Study in Athens.
  3. An additional scholarship of up to $1,000 (applied to the Summer Study 2020 online courses cost) for anyone who registers for a Modern Greek course for this fall semester (Example: CG111).

Essentially, our goal is to allow you to take an online course at little or no cost this summer and to receive an additional scholarship and admission to the program for the summer of 2021. Keep a lookout for more messages about courses this summer (and visiting Athens next year)! And stay healthy and safe.

With best wishes,

Prof. L. J. Samons,
