We are grateful to the following supporting organizations thanks to whom our programme has become unique.
The Stavros Niarchos Foundation is one of the world's leading international philanthropic organizations, making grants in the areas of arts and culture, education, health and medicine, and social welfare. The Foundation funds organizations and projects that exhibit strong leadership and sound management and are expected to achieve a broad, lasting and positive social impact. The Foundation also seeks actively to support projects that facilitate the formation of public-private partnerships as effective means for serving public welfare.
Established in May 1979, the A.G. Leventis Foundation is the outcome of the vision of the Cypriot entrepreneur Anastasios G. Leventis (1902-1978), who laid the bases of its focus on society, education and culture.
Now in its fourth decade, the Foundation retains its adherence to these priorities, keenly supporting the dissemination of Greek and Cypriot cultural heritage, as well as extensive public benefits programs, pioneering environmental protection projects, and medical research.
To this end, its activities range from the reconstruction of a large number of classical, Byzantine, and post-Byzantine monuments, and the enrichment and presentation of Cypriot antiquities collections in museums around the world, to the systematic granting of scholarships, and sponsorship of nature conservation and sustainable development projects in Southern Europe, Africa and world-wide.
The "Bodossaki Foundation" stands as the culminating point of the multifaceted, successful and distinguished career of its founder, Prodromos Bodossaki - Athanasiades. It encompasses in a meaningful and lasting way the values and ideas that he and his contemporaries held in high esteem and continues today as the most significant expression of his legacy.
It was established in 1972 and is a privately owned public benefit organization, administered by a nine-member Board of Trustees. In what was an unprecedented act, Bodossakis bequeathed his entire fortune to this Foundation, making sure that his legacy would be preserved in the years to come.
The principal objectives of the Foundation are:
The Fulbright Program is the premier international educational exchange program in the world. It was established in the United States in 1946 by Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas. The Fulbright Foundation in Greece offers scholarships to Greek and American citizens - students, teachers, scholars, and artists - to pursue a wide variety of educational projects. The Foundation awards grants to Greek and US citizens to study, teach, lecture, or conduct research in the United States and Greece respectively.
The Fulbright Foundation in Greece operates Educational Advising Centers in Athens and Thessaloniki, where experts offer free, comprehensive information on American institutions of higher learning. Visitors to the Centers can learn about all aspects of studying at an American university: fields of study, kinds of programs, admissions procedures. They may then apply to schools most suitable to their educational goals and needs, while enjoying greater chances for admission.
Plaisio Computers SA was established in 1969 and now holds the leading position in the Greek market of Computer products and office supplies (toners & cartridges). It has been listed amongst Europe's 500 Fastest Growing companies for 8 consecutive years (1999 - 2007) and employs 1.200 experts, in Greece and Bulgaria, utilizing an exceptional Business model.
Despite keeping a low-profile to its beneficiary activities, it is worth mentioning that Plaisio Computers has helped a number of schools, universities, hospitals, sports clubs, foundations, and other nonprofit organizations.
