Scholarships for Hellenes
The Foundation has established the Program of Scholarships for Hellenes since 1978. Initially the program awarded scholarships to Greek University graduates for postgraduate studies or doctoral studies in countries worldwide. In 1998 the program started awarding scholarships for doctoral studies in Greek public universities.
More than 100 Scholarships for Hellenes are awarded each year for both studies in Greece and abroad in various fields of study.
The Scholars are selected by the Board of Directors of the Foundation, taking into consideration the relevant evaluations of academic advisors on the basis of academic excellence.
University Professors, Academicians, specialized Scientists and renowned artists are invited to serve as Academic Advisors. Their participation and contribution are both honorary and voluntary. Former scholars of the Foundation, who currently hold academic positions in Universities in Greece and other countries worldwide, are also invited to serve as academic advisors.
Today, the Onassis Foundation scholars are excelling in academia, science and the arts, entrepreneurship and sports.
From 1978 to 2017 a total of 6,096 scholarships have been granted to Hellenes for studies in 37 different countries worldwide. The total expenditure amounts to approximately 93 million US dollars.
The Onassis Foundation announces its annual Scholarship Programs for Hellenes for studies in Greece and other countries worldwide.
