Olympic Preparation Scholarship Programme 2019
YEAR
2019

With the common vision of supporting excellence, Olympic spirit and the hopes of young athletes, the Latsis Foundation has joined forces for the third consecutive year with the A. G. Leventis Foundation and the Hellenic Initiative, supporting Greek and Cypriot athletes who continue their preparations for the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020. The three institutions awarded a total of 41 scholarships to athletes who stood out for their performance in 2018.

The Olympic preparation scholarship programme of the A. G. Leventis Foundation has become a well-established institution as it has been supporting, for the last 20 years, those who train hard, often in unfavourable conditions, in order to be able to deservedly compete with the best of the world in this great celebration of athleticism, the Olympic Games.

  • More than 520 scholarships have been awarded to athletes from Greece and Cyprus from the beginning of the programme in 1999 to date.
  • Olympic scholarships have been received by athletes of a wide range of sports, such as track and field, cycling, shooting, sailing, swimming, rowing, rhythmic gymnastics, karate, etc. 
  • For the 2018-2019 period, 41 sports scholarships have been awarded to athletes competing in individual Olympic sports, as well as 2 scholarships to the first male and first female Greeks who finished the 36th Authentic Marathon.

 

“The fact that last year I became part of the Olympic Preparation Scholarship Programme was the best aid I could have had. The lack of sponsors in conjunction with the sizeable financial requirements for the preparation had brought me to a standstill. The scholarship helped me buy equipment, take two trips abroad for competitions and in general supported me in the long road to reach the World Aquatics Championship in South Korea. Thank you very much!”
