Nordic Heritage Scholarship

One would think that Nordic people physically and historically are very far apart from the Greek people.

Yet, if one takes a close look back in history and explores the origins of the Byzantine Emperors’ personal guard, they would discover the Varangian Guard.  This guard was an elite Byzantine army corps and it comprised the personal bodyguard of the Byzantine emperors beginning with Emperor Basil II in c. 988 CE.  The ties between the two peoples grew so strong that the Emperor Basil offered his sister as a wife to the Rus Viking ruler, Vladimir I of Kiev (r. 980-1015 CE).  Famous figures, such as Harald Hardrada and the Icelander Bolli Bollason  were a part of the tradition of Scandinavian military service in Byzantium.

This relationship, that started more than 1300 years ago, should not only stop, but it should be enhanced. 
For this reason, ACT offers scholarships of 500/1000 euro (one semester/two semester studies) to all students of Nordic Heritage. Fill out an info request below and mention the promotional code JNG53R on your application to secure the scholarship.

Looking forward to meeting on the ACT campus, and to continue the journey!
