The Alexander S. Onassis Foundation was created by Aristotle Onassis to honor the memory of his son Alexander, who died at age 24 in an airplane crash in 1973. Aristotle Onassis died in 1975, and directed in his will that half of his estate be transferred upon his own death to a foundation to be established in Alexander’s name. Upon his death in 1975, two foundations were incorporated in Vaduz, Liechtenstein: the Business Foundation and the Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation. The public benefit foundation is based in Athens, Greece. Culture, education, health, the environment and social achievement are its main priorities. All the activities of the Foundation are exclusively related to Greece and Greek civilization.

Application Deadline: 28 February 2018
