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

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 December 2023.

A select group of 30 beneficiaries in total – 20 doctoral and 10 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 world-class British academic institutions have to offer.

The deadline for applications was Monday 15 May 2023 (23.00 Greek time).
