The “Andreas Vlachos Academic Scholarship” is awarded to MBBS-4 students on the basis of their outstanding academic achievements and their commitment to support the needs of underserved communities and populations once they qualify as a doctor.  This scholarship programme is supported by a generous grant from Vlachos Investments Ltd, a Cyprus-based real estate company, in the memory of Andreas Vlachos, father of the founder of the company Dr Christos Vlachos.  This year’s recipients – Andile Maseko, Blair Segsworth, Joshua Fisher and Michael McCrudden – were recently guests of honour at a lunch hosted by Dr Vlachos and his family at the University of Nicosia’s Gallery Restaurant.  We wish them all the best as they begin their medical studies!
