ONASSIS FELLOWHIPS PROGRAM 2017/2018 FOR INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARS to Study in Greece (Funded)

Application Deadline: February 28th 2017

The Foundation announces the twenty-third (23rd) annual Fellowships Program for International Scholars starting on October 1st, 2017, addressed to non-Greek nationals, University Professors of all levels, Postdoctoral Researchers and Ph.D. Candidates.

In 1995 the Foundation established an annual program of grants and scholarships for research, study and artistic endeavour within Greece. The educational program is intended exclusively for non-Greeks: members of national academies, university professors of all levels, PhD holders, post-doctorate researchers and doctoral candidates. Exceptionally and on a case-by-case basis, the program 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 program 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.
