The National Hellenic Society (NHS) is a proud association of Greek-American leaders, visionaries and philanthropists dedicated to perpetuating, celebrating, and sharing Hellenic heritage.  

The NHS and Manatos & Manatos, the leading government relations and advocacy firm, have collaborated to develop the NHS Heritage America Program -- an experiential odyssey connecting Greek-American college students to their Hellenic roots, heritage and culture within the context and resources Washington, DC has to offer.  Selected candidates will meet a who's-who of Greek-American decision makers, business leaders and other important contacts who will serve as future mentors and career guides for Heritage America alumni.

Invited to apply are Greek-American students ages 18-26 who live in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area and are enrolled as undergraduate or graduate students with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher. Selected candidates will compete for ten available slots.  The students will not bear any expenses associated with their participation in the Heritage America Program.
