100 new world-class internships, now open for Greek American students

Dear friends,

Do you know a bright Greek American student who would want to be one of 100 students who will undertake paid internships in cities around the world — including New York, Miami, London, Athens, Beijing and Buenos Aires — through the Libra Internship Program this year?
Since 2011, we have worked closely with the Libra Group to select talented students with proven leadership potential for this program. This is an outstanding opportunity for Greek American students, and one that we are very proud to make available to our next generation students.*

These internships provide students interested in a wide range of fields — from finance, marketing, administration and the law, to non-profit, research, analytics, IT and HR — the chance to get real-world working experience in one of the Libra Group’s 30 subsidiaries around the world in shipping, aviation, hospitality, real estate, and renewable energy, and investments, as part of a program that includes strong mentoring and buddy components to make sure students make the most of their experience.

Applications are now being accepted for the Libra Summer 2016 Internship Program, so if you know any smart Greek American college students who’d be interested, please share this announcement with them or their families today!

Thanks for your help getting the word out about this great opportunity — and for all you do to help the next generation connect with opportunities like these.

Dear all,

I am pleased to announce the call for applications for the Archimedes Award — a new college scholarship for outstanding Greek American students pursuing studies in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) related fields.

This is the very first scholarship to be offered through the Next Generation Initiative. We are proud that the founder of the Archimedes Award, Dr. Andrew Economos, has chosen to make the Next Generation Initiative the home for the Archimedes Award — and delighted that we can now offer this new means to advance the careers of young men and women in our community, in areas of such vital interest to our nation.

Please help us get the word out — by using the links below to share this news with your friends and family, and forward this email to anyone you think would want to know about this new scholarship.

Award guidelines call for candidates to apply online and complete their applications for the Archimedes Award by March 1, 2015, in order to be considered for a 2015-16 scholarship.
