1978-2018: 40 years, 7,200 scholarships. The journey continues.

Kyriaki Karagianni, having graduated with honours from the Department of Education of the Democritus University of Thrace and having completed her Masters, is embarking on a Ph.D. researching the socio-psychological processes of Bullying among Adolescent Schoolchildren. 

Children are also at the epicentre of the research which Athanasia Kotsiou is conducting at the University of Cambridge concerning the Impact of Social Media Use on the Cognitive Functions and Academic Performance of Primary School Children. 

Sofia Konstantinidou, on the other hand, has dedicated herself to Clinical Oncology and her research will set out in search of new treatment regimens for lung cancer. 

Yorgos Psarellis, one of the top Chemical Engineering graduates of the National Technical University of Athens, will attempt to investigate the secrets of human health. Combining experimental data with machine learning models and data mining algorithms, his research will help proposing prevention strategies and personalized medicine treatments. 

Equipped with knowledge and armed with dedication, Kyriaki, Athanasia, Sofia and Giorgos can succeed in their goals. They can bring their research to fruition, achieve their aims and continue their impressive careers.
