The Onassis Foundation announces the twenty-second annual program of scholarships starting on October 1st, 2016.
In 1995 the Foundation established an annual program of grants and scholarships for research, study and artistic endeavour within Greece. The educational program is intended exclusively for non-Greeks: members of national academies, university professors of all levels, PhD holders, post-doctorate researchers and doctoral candidates. Exceptionally and on a case-by-case basis, the program may accept Greeks of the Diaspora, second generation Greeks, and Greeks who permanently reside abroad and have been studying or have been employed in foreign Universities for over 10 or 15 years, depending on the type of scholarship.
The program also includes Cypriot citizens, who have studied and reside outside Greece, and are members of National Academies, University professors of all levels–doctorate holders and post-doctorate researchers– as well as distinguished artists.
The Program aims at promoting Greek language, history and culture abroad, thereby creating and encouraging ties of friendship and cooperation between members of the foreign academic community and their Greek counterparts.
