A program developed in 2016 by the U.S. Embassy in Athens, in collaboration with the American College of Greece, the American College of Thessaloniki and the American Farm School in Thessaloniki. The Education Unites: From Camp to Campus program offered higher education scholarships for 100 eligible refugees in Athens and 100 in Thessaloniki. 

At Cemeli, we wanted to take part and to revive hope and inspire as many young refugees that had to flee their country due to conflict and danger. Their chance to obtain a degree and build a career is at risk.
