The American Hellenic Institute Foundation (AHIF) is accepting applications for its leading travel abroad program the AHIF College Student Foreign Policy Study Trip to Greece and Cyprus aimed to help Greek and Cypriot American college students better understand the core foreign policy issues important to the Greek American community. 

During the two-week trip, the students will have the opportunity to experience first-hand foreign policy issues affecting Greece and Cyprus, and the interests of the U.S. in the region. Prior to their departure, students will meet in Washington, DC where they will attend meetings and briefings with officials at Greek and Cypriot embassies, the State Department, Congress and think-tanks.

While in Greece and Cyprus the students will attend briefings with officials at the American embassies; various ministries, including Foreign Affairs; military; members of Parliament; religious leaders; think-tanks, and members of academia and the private sector. In Cyprus, the group will visit the Turkish-occupied area, receive a guided tour of old Nicosia Airport-UNFICYP in the demilitarized zone, and take a day trip to Paphos and Ayia Napa. While in Greece, they will participate in a day trip on a private boat and an exclusive tour of the Karaiskakis Stadium, the home stadium of Olympiacos FC.

"U.S. Strategic Interests: The Aegean Sea & Cyprus' EEZ"

AHI Logo T.png

About:

The Eastern Mediterranean sits at an geostrategic crossroads between Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. For decades, the United States has understood the importance of projecting stability and democracy in the region. 

Today, this region has been threatened by the instability and continued deterioration of democracy in Turkey. President Erdogan continues to question, violate and threaten Greece's sovereign air and space borders.

In Cyprus, a nation which Turkey has illegally occupied for over 40 years, Turkish warships have escalated tension even further. Just this past February, Turkish warships blocked an Italian drilling vessel for ENI from reaching its destination in Cyprus' EEZ, where it would rightful explore resources. 

As the region slips into increasing instability and U.S. interests are threatened, please join AHI for a timely conversation on how to resolve such issues. AHI President Nick Larigakis will serve as moderator to a panel featuring the follow experts:
