The Sophie Afenduli Foundation was created in 2005 according to Mr. Alexandre Afenduli's wishes.

Each year, the Foundation offers one or more scholarships intended to contribute, totally or partially, to the costs of postgraduate studies, research training, and research in Switzerland at a university, a polytechnic school, or any other equivalent school.

The scholarships are intended for Greek students and researchers wishing to study or conduct their research in Switzerland, as well as for Swiss students and researchers who work in a field of interest to Greece.

The Sophie Afenduli Foundation is a support for Greek-Swiss studies and research.
