Are you eligible?

Criteria 1.

Are you Albanian?

To be eligible for OriginAL, you must have at least one Albanian birth parent/grandparent. This journey is an opportunity to learn about Albania and Kosova, as well as to explore your Albanian identity, whether cultural or spiritual. We welcome all participants with Albanian origins, so you’ll feel completely at home.

Criteria 2.

Are you between the ages 18-24?

You must be between the ages of 18 and 24 at the time of the trip. If you satisfy those requirements, urime!—you’re in the running for the OriginAL trip.

Criteria 3.

Have you ever lived in Albania or Kosova?

Have you vacationed or studied in Albania/Kosova before the age of 18? You can sign up for the OriginAL trip if you resided in Albania or Kosova for less than 3 months!

If you visited or lived in Albania or Kosova for more than three months after the age of twelve, you are ineligible (sorry!).
