The FELLOWSHIPS Program for international scholars was introduced in 1995 and is aimed at academics of all ranks – members of national Academies, Ph.D. holders and post-doctoral researchers – to conduct research in Greece in subjects relating to Greek CULTURE and society. The SCHOLARSHIPS are also aimed at citizens of Cyprus who are not Greek residents, while the Greek 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, may also be accepted.
The Program aims at promoting Greek language and CULTURE abroad, thereby creating and encouraging ties of friendship and cooperation between members of the academic community. The selection is based on the recommendations made by special committees consisting of professors, scientists and former scholars, and is validated by the ONASSIS FOUNDATION‘s Board of Directors.
Since 1995, the Fellowship Program for International Scholars went through successive phases in order to meet the standards of a dynamic and interdisciplinary project.
