         C. SUBMISSION DATE
         The submission deadline is the 30th of April 2009. he Greek Diplomatic Authorities will
notify the candidates of the results after June 2009.

          D. TERMS OF THE SCHOLARSHIP
          1. Students accepted for postgraduate studies, whose knowledge of the Greek language is
insufficient, could attend Greek Language classes, only if the Committee of the University
considers the Greek Language indispensable for their enrolment in the post-graduate program. The
scholarship program begins after the candidate's arrival in Greece, at a School of Modern Greek
Language either at the Didaskaleio of the University of Athens or the School of Modern Greek
Language of the University of Thessaloniki (the courses for Modern Greek Language usually
commence on 1st October). The candidate must at least be conditionally admitted by a Greek
University as proven by a formal letter issued by the relevant Faculty or faculty professor of that
University. In this case the duration of the scholarship can be extended up to three (3) years (one
for the Greek Language and two for the Postgraduate Studies)
          2. The candidates must notify the Ministry one month in advance about the exact date of
their arrival in Greece and the number of their passport, plus the date of its issue, so that all the
necessary arrangements concerning student VISA could be made by the Ministry of Education
before their arrival in Greece. A tourist visa cannot be changed into a student visa in Greece; that’s
why candidates are advised not to come to Greece without having previously secured a student
visa.
          3. The scholars will be deprived of their scholarship in any of the following cases:
          a) A false statement has been made on their application dossier.
          b) They don’t comply with the terms and conditions of the scholarship.
          c) They hold a scholarship from another source.
          d) They will be subjected to disciplinary action by the University or will have no prospect
for academic achievement (e.g. failure to achieve a satisfactory level in the Greek language or in
their major field of studies).
          e) They leave Greece -regardless of the reason- without having informed the Ministry of
Education in writing prior to their departure.
          4. Applicants who are or have been scholarship holders of the State Scholarships
Foundation will be excluded from all future programmes of Ministry of Education.

         E. DURATION OF THE SCHOLARSHIP
         1. The duration of the postgraduate scholarship is for two years, unless a third year is
            considered necessary by the University, for the study of the Greek Language.
         2. A scholarship renewal is decided by the Ministry of Education, according to the
            scholars’ research-studies. It all depends on students’ satisfactory progress, in order
            for them to obtain their relevant degrees. In any case, the Ministry of Education
            examines and decides upon the total duration of each student’s scholarship.

         F. FINANCIAL PROVISIONS

          a. 650 euros for initial expenses.
