For a third straight year Ancoria Insurance Public Ltd continues its support of the Cyprus shipping industry by granting three full scholarships. The successful recipients for 2021 Michalis Menelaou, Panayiota Pari and Sophie Eleftheriou have been granted full scholarships for the seven subjects required to undergo the Professional Qualifying Examinations (PQE) for Membership (MICS) to the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS).
The Chairwoman of the ICS Cyprus Branch Ms. Christina Christoforou commented that “By awarding these scholarships Ancoria is helping students to concentrate on what is important for them; Education.
