In 1995 the Foundation established an annual programme of grants and scholarships for research, study and artistic endeavour within Greece. The programme is intended exclusively for non-Greeks: members of national academies, university professors of all levels, PhD holders, post-doctorate researchers, post-graduate students and doctoral candidates, artists, and teachers of Greek language, literature, history and culture in both primary and secondary education. Exceptionally and on a case-by-case basis, the programme may accept Greeks of the 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, depending on the type of scholarship.
The programme also includes Cypriot citizens, who have studied and reside outside Greece, and are members of National Academies, University professors of all levels –doctorate holders and post-doctorate researchers– as well as distinguished artists.
The Programme aims at promoting Greek language, history and culture abroad, thereby creating and encouraging ties of friendship and cooperation between members of the foreign academic community and their Greek counterparts.
