In a short and austere ceremony at CYMEPA offices in Limassol, the cheque for the Tsavliris Cultural Foundation Scholarship was presented to Georgia Fotiou, postgraduate student in Shipping and Finance at the Cyprus University of Technology CUT, as she was unanimously selected as the recipient of the Scholarship for the academic year 2020 – 2021.
The Foundation was represented by its President Akis Montanios, its Secretary Michael Ierides and the Alternate Member of the Board Katerina Papavassiliou. The CUT was represented by the Dean of the Faculty of Management and Economics Professor Photis Panayides and Associate Professor Panayiotis Andreou.
