Pierce Class Scholarships
Leave Your Class legacy!
Since Maria West founded The American College of Greece 146 years ago in Smyrna, our core mission remains unchanged. Now it’s more important than ever: To contribute to the advancement of Greece and the global community through teaching, scholarship, outreach, and service rooted in the American educational tradition. ACG’s identity and legacy are intricately connected to its commitment to provide talented but economically disadvantaged students a quality education through scholarship assistance.
As a non-profit institution, the scholarships and the high-quality education The American College of Greece provides, would not have been possible without the generous donations from alumni, parents, friends, foundations, and companies that support the school’s mission. ACG encompasses three educational divisions: Pierce, Deree, and Alba, with over 5,700 students from Greece and over 72 countries. Almost half of the students receive some need and/or merit-based financial assistance. ΑCG has over 62,000 Alumni around the globe who constitute our best Ambassadors.
Why should you support the Class Scholarships program?
Even the smallest donation can make a difference when it’s part of a collective effort! With your support, in the spirit of “Non Ministrari – Sed Ministrare,” our school will be able to continue offering life-changing opportunities to the new generation. Through the program, your class, as a team, can establish a scholarship for an academically promising student with financial difficulties, leaving its legacy and a substantial contribution to advancing your school’s mission.
Even before the pandemic, the need for financial aid was growing. Now, with students and families impacted by the economic fallout of the COVID-19 crisis, the need is greater than ever.
The class team can choose the type of named scholarship they would like to support:
- Fully (100%) or Partially funded scholarships
- Duration: 1 or more years and starting time
- Beneficiaries: Entering, continuing Pierce Students or IB (International Baccalaureate students)
Your gift at any level is very important – there is no such thing as a small amount when it comes to benefitting students’ lives and education!
Donors will be recognized in print and digital ACG media and some cases on the ACG Campus.
