Postgraduate Scholarships Programme 2022-2023

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. For the academic year 2022-2023, the Postgraduate Scholarships Programme focused 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. 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, having regard to their social and economic situation.

  • To date, over 2,250 undergraduate and postgraduate students have received funding through scholarship programmes.
  • In 2022, the Foundation supported a total of 36 postgraduate scholars, who studied in Greece and abroad.
  • For the academic year 2022-2023, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Sweden and Denmark have been the top 5 countries of preference for postgraduate scholarship candidates.


“The people at the Foundation believed in me, offering not only practical and valuable support but also enhancing my faith in achieving my dreams. When I began my studies at the University of Copenhagen, I couldn’t imagine how much this experience would benefit me. Just 8 months into my studies, it has significantly broadened my horizons. The University environment, along with the country as a whole, have instilled in me dreams, plans, and a profound sense of inspiration to make the world a better place, utilising the tools of artificial intelligence in which I practice every day. Whatever I achieve in the future, I will always remember that it was the Latsis Foundation that gave me the initial, major boost.”

“In a society that is constantly undergoing technological changes, continuous education is increasingly considered paramount. In this context, the Latsis Foundation has provided me with the opportunity to receive training in cutting-edge technologies, such as machine learning and data analysis, at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (CIM) at the University of Warwick. Through the Postgraduate Scholarships Programme, an unattainable dream –participating in internationally renowned postgraduate programmes can come true. In my case, I’ve had the chance to discover a new scientific world, meet people from all over the globe, stand on my own feet, and ultimately, become fully equipped to face the future with confidence.”

“The Latsis Foundation scholarship has been vital for me in terms of continuing my studies, given that without it, I wouldn’t have been able to take this step. I now have the opportunity to engage with the latest technologies in Computational Linguistics on a daily basis and acquire new knowledge within a supportive and collaborative community of fellow students and professors. I feel immense relief for the support I receive from the Foundation, which allows me, for the first time, to fully dedicate myself to my studies, free from the burden of financial anxiety. I would like to express my gratitude to the Latsis Foundation for believing in my abilities and helping me pursue my dream!”

“The Latsis Foundation scholarship has been crucial to continuing my postgraduate studies, as it allowed me to fully focus on my studies without the stress of financial uncertainty. Through the scholarship, I gained access to additional resources and opportunities that facilitated the development of both my scientific and personal interests. It provided me with a valuable and unique educational experience abroad. The Latsis Foundation will forever be an integral part of my educational and professional journey!”
