In partnership with the British Embassy Athens and the Greek State Scholarships Foundation (IKY), we are pleased to announce the third year of the short-term scholarship programme, which this time is co-funded by the State Scholarships Foundation (ΙΚΥ) and the British Embassy Athens.

The programme is aimed at postgraduate and doctoral students enrolled at Greek universities who wish to benefit from a four-week structured learning and research placement at a British higher education institution. The programme is four weeks long and the mobilities must take place by the end of June 2024.

A select group of 24 beneficiaries in total – 18 doctoral and 6 postgraduate candidates – will have the opportunity to build prestigious academic networks, be inspired by new ideas and alternative ways of working, and utilise the excellent resources that world-class British academic institutions have to offer.

The deadline for applications was Friday 23 February 2024 (23.00 Greek time).
