College Year in Athens (CYA) <http://www.cyathens.org/> is offering two
opportunities for Gap Year students
<https://cyathens.org/327/1/Fall21GapPrograms/>: one for those passionate
about antiquity with the program "Archaeological Field Work: Excavation,
Workshops and Digital Technologies
<https://cyathens.org/328/1/gapprogamarchaeologicalfieldwork/%20>" and one
for those interested in learning more about activism and diversity, with
the program "Understanding Activism, Diversity, and Equity: the example of
Greece <https://cyathens.org/329/1/gapprogramactivism/>".

While gaining a fuller understanding of a different culture via
* interactive* learning methods, students will create an* e-portfolio* as a
record of what is learned and accomplished through this program. *Field
trips* within Greece will not only allow the broadening of *perspective* and
expanding of the *worldview* but mainly grant them a unique chance to come
into a *close encounter* with Greeks through basic Greek language classes
and cultural seminars.

CYA, recognizing the difficult times that COVID-19 has created, has
established the Fall 2021 *Gap Flight Award*. A student who will be
accepted in the Fall 2021 Gap program, will receive $1,000 to offset the
cost of the round-trip ticket to/from Athens, Greece.

College Year in Athens (CYA) <http://www.cyathens.org/> is a non-profit
educational institution, which, since 1962, provides English-speaking
undergraduates (more than 10,000 to date)  the transformative experience to
study in Athens and familiarize themselves with the Greek culture. To find
out how Greece & CYA is faring up, please check out the COVID-19 FAQ on our
website here <https://cyathens.org/314/1/Notices/>.
