Study Abroad Ioannina

Sent by Demetrios Koutoulas []
Dear friends of the Panepirotic Federation of America,

We are proud to announce that the Study Abroad program at the University of Ioannina will take place from July 2- 27, 2012.

Study Abroad Ioannina

Study Abroad Ioannina is a tuition-free academic summer program focusing on the Greek language and Epirote culture, available to anyone of Epirotic descent, ages 18-30.

In previous years, Epirotes from many nations, including the United States, Germany, Sweden, Albania, Belgium, South Africa, and Argentina, have participated. Students live on the University of Ioannina campus and have full access to all services offered by the university. Language classes are held weekday mornings. Multiple class levels are offered and no previous knowledge of the Greek language is needed. Dance classes, lectures, and excursions take place some afternoons, evenings, and weekends. Past outings have included trips to Meteora and Metsovo, Dodoni, Lefkada, Zagori, and Perama. Recent participants have described the program as an essential part of their understanding of the Greek language and Epirote culture
. .

The Panepirotic Federation has sent 34 students to the program in the last 4 years.

You can also download the application.

To be considered for the program you must be:
1. 18 - 30 years old
