Schilizzi Scholarship 2019-20

King’s will be offering three Schilizzi Scholarships worth £15,000 each to Greek or Cypriot residents successfully applying for undergraduate programme entry in September 2019.


What is the Schilizzi Scholarship?

The Schilizzi Scholarships were set up by the Schilizzi Foundation, established in recognition of Helena Schilizzi, the wife of Eleftherios Venizelos, one of the most significant dignitaries in modern Greek history, and she played a major role in the development of Modern Greek & Byzantine Studies at King’s.

In recognition of Helen’s invaluable contribution to King’s, the Schilizzi Scholarships provide three scholarships to residents of Greek or Cyprus students looking to pursue an undergraduate degree at King’s.

The total value of the scholarship per recipient is £15,000 (£5,000 cash bursary per year for three years) to support living expenses.

Please note, this scholarship is only available for first year undergraduate students starting in September 2019. Students who are on a programme of more than 3 years will only receive funding for 3 years. Study abroad, intercalation and repeat years are not included.

If you are awarded, you will be required to attend a reception event with the other recipients and trustees and submit an annual end of year report to the trustees.  


Am I eligible to apply?

We welcome applications from students who are ordinarily resident in Greece or Cyprus, and are beginning their first undergraduate programme in Sept 2019, at King's.

Candidates should intend to return to Greece or Cyprus upon completion of their King’s undergraduate programme.


How do I complete the application form? 

You can download the application form here.

You should email the completed form to funding@kcl.ac.uk together with scanned copies of your supporting documents. 

The deadline for applications is 5pm on 28 August 2019.
