“Stavros Niarchos Foundation” Scholarship Program at Deree - The American College of Greece
25 May 2018

For the fourth consecutive academic year, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation has supported the SNF Scholarship Program implemented from Deree – The American College of Greece, offering the opportunity to talented students, already enrolled in Greek public universities, to attend courses at Deree, whilst continuing to pursue a public university degree.

The aim of the Program is to help students improve their academic excellence, while at the same time seize opportunities for a successful professional life. Since its launch, in 2014, the SNF Scholarship Program has offered a total of 272 scholarships, while the SNF recently approved a new grant establishing a permanent endowment to provide 50 scholarships annually, covering – jointly with The American College of Greece - a significant percentage of the students’ tuition fees. Students come from 13 Greek public universities, and a total of 47 academic departments.

On May 24th, SNF representatives attended the successful completion of the SNF Scholarship Program for the academic year 2017-18, with the participation of scholarship recipients, distinguished scholars, as well as prestigious members of the academic community.

The Program is part of the SNF’s “Recharging the Youth” initiative.
