Postgraduate Scholarships Programme 2021-2022

Its main goal being the enhancement of access to education for young people, the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation continues its long tradition of awarding scholarships, thus consistently supporting the dreams and efforts of students who wish to pursue postgraduate studies in universities in Greece and abroad, through the implementation of its annual Postgraduate Scholarships Programme. The evaluation process takes into account several criteria, placing particular emphasis on academic achievement, the quality of the postgraduate curriculum, as well as the educational development and future aspirations of candidates, giving consideration to their social and economic situation.

With a view to addressing more effectively current professional challenges posed by the global digital transformation, the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation has redesigned its regular Postgraduate Scholarships Programme to focus, for the 2021-2025 academic years, on scientific fields of Engineering and Applied Sciences that are linked to the 4IR (Industry 4.0.), such as: Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Machine Learning, Robotics, Quantum Computing, Programming Languages, Cybersecurity etc.

  • To date, over 2,200 undergraduate and postgraduate students have been funded through scholarship programmes.
  • In 2021, the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation supported a total of 61 postgraduate scholars who studied in Greece and abroad.
  • For the academic year 2021-2022, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Sweden and Denmark have been the top 5 countries of preference for postgraduate scholarship candidates.
