Canada is a great place to study, offering consistently high-quality education across the country. Canada ranks high in the global ranking of its universities and is among the best countries for international students. The quality of life in Canada is consistently ranked in first place. Canada also has a rich multicultural society and a vibrant Greek diaspora active in offering community programs, events and services. The Hellenic Initiative Canada Scholarship Program will provide financial support for students to study at the Master’s level at any accredited university in Canada. The program will also provide opportunities for students to develop skills, connections and experience that will allow them to lead successful careers and contribute to the future growth and prosperity of Greece.
The scholarships will be awarded to outstanding graduate students with a passion for their field of study. Preference will be given to students who demonstrate financial need, and in areas of study that are in demand in the workforce in Greece, in areas of leading-edge technologies, or in specialized fields that address current and future needs. In efforts to reverse the brain drain, THI Canada will work with partners in Greece and Canada to identify possible training and work experience for students returning to Greece to pursue careers.
Be Greek nationals residing in Greece. Meet Canadian entry/visa requirements. Have an acceptance into a Canadian graduate (Master’s) program. Exhibit financial need and intent to return to Greece post-studies. Maintain a GPA of at least 8 out of 10 in undergraduate studies
