Stavros Niarchos Foundation Centre for Hellenic Studies

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Centre for Hellenic Studies was established in 2011 at Simon Fraser University through a significant multimillion-dollar grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Situated atop Burnaby Mountain, just east of downtown Vancouver, the SNF Centre for Hellenic Studies is the premier site for Hellenic Studies in North America and is committed to the advocacy and study of Hellenism.

The Centre also has partnerships across the United States and is leading the way in the expansion of Hellenic Studies to China.
