    Using the article "the"

    Dear members,

    I was wondering about the use of the article “the”.

    Recently, in a web request form, I wrote the following:

    “Greek State Scholarships Foundation is demanding, as soon as possible, an acceptance letter […]”

    I suppose not because the omitting of the article “the”.

    The above sentence could be considered as correct? Does the omitting of article “the” constitute a big mistake?

    What about sentences I have read as news titles like “Government demands from the […]” (The article “the” is being omitted)?

    Thank you in advance.
