For the 28th consecutive year, the Hellenic Scholarship Foundation has awarded scholarships to well-deserving university students. The event was held on February 3, 2017 at the Faculty Club of McGill University.
Among the recipients are a number of Socrates-Demosthenes graduates, whom you can see above, surrounded by Andy Crillis, Executive Vice-President of CHGM and Chris Filandrianos, Director of the Socrates III campus.
Let us introduce them to you:
