Please fill out the application completely before you click on the "Submit" button at the end of the form. The system will not save incomplete applications.

At the end of the online application form, applicants will upload files. All files must be in PDF format. If a file is not in PDF format, it will be rejected by the application system.

The files you upload should not exceed a combined total of 8MB, otherwise, your application will be rejected by the system.

Please note:

You must inform a current course instructor from your school, familiar with your academic work (your recommender) to fill in and submit the Recommendation Letter electronic form (see above). Please notice that the recommender should be one of your current school instructors and that we may not disclose the information provided by your recommender, if the latter does not wish to disclose it.

You must inform your parents/guardians to fill in and submit the Parental Consent electronic form. Please notice that without your parent’s consent you will not be eligible to participate in the program, even if your application reaches the final stages.

Tips for Applicants

Fill out the online application completely before you click on the "Submit" button at the end of the form!

Do not hit "Enter." This will submit your application.

The system will not save incomplete applications. For questions that require more lengthy responses, you may want to draft them in a separate document and have them ready to paste into the application form. Please note, once you submit the application, you cannot go back and revise it, so review it very carefully before you submit it.

Check thoroughly that you have uploaded all the requested PDF files.

Always bear in mind that the application system can only accept uploaded documents in PDF format and the files you upload should not exceed a combined total of 8MB! If you submit a .doc or any other file, the system will reject the file.

To submit your transcripts (both past and current school year) and the English Language Certification, scan the documents and export them as PDF files, then upload the PDF files where indicated.

Upon submission of your application, you should see a confirmation page and you should receive an email confirmation from hssp_greece(at)chs.harvard.edu. If you do not receive confirmation that your application was received, first check your SPAM folder and if you still do not have a message, then contact Matina Goga.
