Active participation of the HOC in Olympic preparation scholarships

The Hellenic Olympic Committee joins forces with the A. G. Leventis Foundation and the Ioannis S. Latsis Foundation and for the first time participates in the Olympic Preparation Scholarship Program of the A. G. Leventis Foundation, actively supporting athletes in their preparations for the Tokyo Olympic Games. The decision of the EEE to participate in the Olympic Preparation Scholarship Programme of the A. G. Leventis Foundation – in addition to the financial support it has long offered to the members of the Pre-Olympic team – was taken in order to support more athletes from all the Olympic Sports Federations of the country, who despite the difficult conditions prevailing due to the pandemic, train hard all this time , to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics and to distinguish themselves by national colours.

Since 1999, the Olympic Preparation Scholarship Program of the A. G. Leventis Foundation has been supporting the efforts of athletes for the Olympic dream and in addition to the EEE, it is supported this year – for the fifth consecutive year – by the Ioannis S. Latsis Foundation, with the aim of promoting the values of Olympicism and excellence in our country.
With the participation of all three bodies – the A. G. Leventis Foundation, the Ioannis S. Latsis Foundation and the Hellenic Olympic Committee, 68 scholarships are awarded, and a total of 76 athletes, representing the 28 federations, are awarded.
