Bodosaki Foundation: Inauguration of Scholarship Programs for 52nd Year

The application period for the triptych Programs for master’s and doctoral studies, for postdoctoral research and for visiting researchers has begun.

Machine learning and artificial intelligence, biomedical technology and life science informatics, quantum engineering and energy technology, regenerative medicine and other cutting-edge scientific disciplines coexist with more than 20 other field options at her new Bodosaki Foundation.

Applications for the fellowship programs begin today and cover the need for scientific expertise at three different stages, master’s or doctoral studies, postdoctoral research, and studying current research trends internationally through the visiting research scientist program.

Scholarships donated by individuals who are inspired by the vision of the foundation and the dreams of young people and support their realization are newly added to the foundation’s scholarships. As many as three of the scholarships that will be awarded this year for postgraduate studies in the field of Medicine-Biomedicine are “Elizavet Fotiou Fotiinelli – Ioanna Dimitriou Kritikou scholarships”.

The 52nd scholarship program for postgraduate and doctoral studies with a submission deadline of February 15, 2024, which is intended for graduates or final year students of all faculties and departments of the AEI university sector, covers about 60 scholarships for study in Greece and abroad in 17 different scientific fields:

1. Management of businesses, agencies and non-profit organizations

2. Machine learning and applications, artificial intelligence, robotics
