Financial aid, internships, work study and economic scholarships are all available to students enrolled in the program.


HISA offers an open admissions process to all serious minded students with an ambition to discover more of themselves and the world. Neither our educational philosophy, nor our acceptance parameters discriminate on the basis of grade point average or arbitrarily decide on the quality of a student’s artistic or written work according to some traditional hierarchy. We believe more in one’s desire to succeed, of openness in sprit and sensibility, and an overall positive attitude to absorb the challenges of the new.

Please take the time on the Application Page on our site to tell us in as much detail as you can about your background and your ambitions in coming to study on a Greek island. We want to encourage students to join us who are serious, self-motivated, can work independently, and profit from spending a semester living and studying in a uniquely individualized program.
