Postgraduate Scholarships Programme 2020-2021
YEAR
2020

With a view to enhancing access to education for young people, the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation consistently supports the dreams and efforts of students who wish to pursue postgraduate studies in universities in Greece and abroad, regardless of their chosen scientific field, 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.

  • To date, over 2,200 undergraduate and postgraduate students have been funded through scholarship programmes.
  • In 2020 the Foundation supported a total of 77 postgraduate students in a wide range of scientific fields, such as Humanities & Arts, Social Sciences, Life Sciences, Science, Environment & Energy, Management & Economics.
  • For the academic year 2020-2021, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and France have been the top 5 countries of preference for the candidates of the Postgraduate Scholarships Programme.

“A year and a half ago I was preparing my applications for postgraduate studies, knowing that the decision to move abroad in order to further expand my knowledge would be a difficult one, both psychologically and financially. After being admitted into an innovative postgraduate programme in Architecture in Madrid, I was delighted to find out that I am a scholar of the Latsis Public Benefit Foundation, which is certainly an honor and recognition of my personal commitment and my family’s efforts. What is more, the scholarship proved to be a critical factor particularly during 2020. Given the unfortunate effects of the pandemic, I can confidently say that without the Foundation’s support I would not have been able to cope with the demands of life in Spain. I now return to Greece having managed to graduate successfully and hoping to contribute to our country’s future with my newly acquired knowledge.”

“The Latsis Foundation scholarship has undoubtedly been my entry key to the United Kingdom in order to further pursue my postgraduate studies in the field of Political Theory. As a scholar of the Foundation, I have had the opportunity to fully focus on and navigate the rocky path of research and academic study, and to enjoy the social and academic life offered by a university of this class, without having to worry about unnecessary distractions. In addition, the recognized prestige of this scholarship provides me both with the moral determination to keep pursuing my goals, and with a qualification that contributes to my professional development and advancement in general.”

“Through the Postgraduate Scholarships Programme of the John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation, I have managed to accomplish my goals and dreams, and study in France focusing on a subject I treasure most, namely Theoretical Physics, within the framework of a postgraduate programme. In addition, this scholarship has been a catalyst for completing my master’s degree without having to seek additional financial support; as a result, I have been able to devote more time to my studies and complete the programme with excellent results. I have been thereby equipped with the necessary knowledge and competitive resources to launch my doctoral degree, thus continuing my academic career, as I desired.”
