Fall 2010 Hellenic Legacy Scholarship Winner
The Greek America Foundation and DEREE - The American College of Greece were delighted to have Deborah Cunningham as the recipient of the first Hellenic Legacy Scholarship. Cunningham was a study abroad student during the 2010 fall semester.
Deborah is a senior at Wheaton College in Illinois with a double major in Ancient Languages and English. She chose to study abroad in Greece in order to “gain a deeper, more personal understanding of Greek culture.” Having studied Ancient Greek, Deborah was looking forward to immersing herself in the modern language and culture. At the American College of Greece she studied Modern Greek, Greek Folklore and Anthropology, and the Archaeology of Greece.
The Greek America Foundation was very pleased to be able to support Deborah in her efforts with a scholarship for a full semester’s tuition to further her study and experience of diachronic Hellenism.
