HBOT Scholarship Program


For many years, the Hellenic Board of Trade (HBOT) has assisted students through mentorship and other programs, always seeking to elevate our youth. In 2024, the HBOT Scholarship Program was launched, to promote young Hellenes pursuing higher education at the university level. This scholarship is aimed at providing financial support to students of Greek origin, for the payment of tuition and school fees. With this assistance, we hope to encourage future members of our business community in this important step towards their professional careers and look forward to one day welcoming them into the HBOT ecosystem.
