Libra Group Fellowships seek to support the leaders of tomorrow by funding selected students in further and higher education.
In the US, we have supported the McCain Institute by offering professional experience to participants in the institute’s Next Generation Leaders Program. This leading center for research and action in national security and foreign policy was founded by Senator John McCain and is focused on maximizing the ability of leaders to make enlightened decisions in pursuit of American and global interests.
Recognizing the importance of high level business skills development in improving Greece’s commercial competitiveness we have made a commitment to fund 25 students per annum on the MBA program at the Athens University of Economics and Business. Through a commitment with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, we have supported 30 Israeli students with fellowship funding. We are proud to have supported students at a center of excellence with a strong track record for developing business leaders.
We have also supported a research fellowship program at Johns Hopkins-Libra Initiative, one of the world’s leading medical universities. We funded carefully chosen Greek physicians or biomedical investigators to undertake research fellowships before returning to medical practice or academia in Greece.
