Online PR News – 03-September-2012 – Athens, Greece – With the establishment of various scholarship programs, the Foundation puts education in the spotlight.
The Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation founded in memory of Aristotle Onassisí son Alexander S. Onassis, who was tragically killed in an airplane accident, has since its inception, been involved in supporting culture, education, the environment, health and social solidarity. As part of its support for education, the Foundation offers scholarship programs for both doctorate and postgraduate programs. The programmes are either for Hellenes for their studies in Greece or abroad or for foreigners. These are both announced on an annual basis.
Firstly, the Program of Scholarships for Hellenes was established in 1978. Initially, the program awarded scholarships to Greek University graduates for postgraduate studies or doctoral studies abroad. In 1998, the program began to award scholarships for doctoral studies in Greece and in 2001 scholarships began to be awarded for post-graduate studies in Greece. More than 130 Scholarships for Hellenes are awarded each and every year in Greece and abroad in all fields of study. Scholarships for Hellenes can also be awarded to artists who wish to improve their technique or abilities in schools, conservatories, workshops and academies abroad.
Secondly, in 1995, an annual program for grants and scholarships for research, study and artistic endeavour within Greece intended exclusively for non-Greeks was established. The program also accepts Greek Diaspora applicants (on a case by case basis) as well as second generation Greeks, and Greeks who permanently live abroad and have been studying or have been employed in foreign Universities for over 10 or 15 years, depending on the type of scholarship that is under consideration.
