CHICAGO, IL - The Nation's "best and brightest" Greek-American students, each of whom will receive a $10,000 Scholarship Grant from the PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation (PHSF), have been evaluated and selected by its Academic Committee and the Board of Directors and notified via express mail.

 

"With an increased number of applications from last year, the process of evaluating and ranking so many applicants was arduous; we needed every day since the August 31 deadline," said Academic Committee Chairman Prof. George Alexopoulos and added: "The high quality of the applicants should make Hellenes everywhere very proud." 

 

Foundation Founder and Chairman Chris P. Tomaras reminds everyone that there are still several opportunities open for contributors or organizations to dedicate a Scholarship with the name of their own choice.  "Every donation is welcome, regardless of the amount," said Tomaras, "but our $10,000 'Named Scholarships' are a unique opportunity to remember a parent or loved one, or create additional awareness and goodwill for one's business or organization. I encourage those interested to call me directly for details on these tax-deductible donations."
