The American College of Greece is grateful to the Sklavenitis Hellenic Hypermarkets S.A. for its generous donation of an expendable scholarship for a promising young student who wishes to study at Deree. The “Sklavenitis Expendable Scholarship” will be available from Fall 2021 to 2024 and provides full tuition for the duration of a scholar’s studies.
Sklavenitis operates 429 stores and six distribution centers in Greece, cooperates with more than 3,000 Greek and foreign suppliers and its 28,100 employees serve approximately 340,000 customers daily. The supermarket was founded in 1954 at Petralona by brothers Spyros and Giannis Sklavenitis and their friend Miltiadis Papadopoulos. In 1967, they established TELEXYP, the first telephone ordering company in Greece. Since then, the company has steadily developed while remaining faithful to the principles and values established by its founders — always striving to have excellent quality products at the lowest prices, offer exemplary customer service, and contribute to our society’s progress.
The COVID-19 pandemic may have changed the world landscape, but we haven’t let it get in the way of our mission and the value of education. ACG is incredibly grateful for our new collaboration with Sklavenitis Hellenic Hypermarkets S.A. that offers a ray of hope to promising young people in Greece during these challenging times.
