PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation Subsidizes Student Packages to National Innovation Conference on June 12th


In its effort to promote its mission of providing college students with the framework and foundation for the brightest of futures, the Chairman of the PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation (PHSF), Chris Tomaras, announced a partnership with the Greek America Foundation and its National Innovation Conference, through which the PHSF will subsidize up to fifty attendance packages to the groundbreaking conference on June 12th in Chicago.


Through this partnership, the first fifty students from the PHSF pool of scholarship recipients to respond, will be granted a complimentary package to attend the day long conference, which includes 12 presentations, breakfast and lunch.  The attendance packages, valued at $500 each, will be available to any Greek American undergraduate students, if all 50 positions are not filled by the PHSF Award Recipients.


"This effort makes perfect sense," according to Tomaras, whose goal has always been to recognize and reward Greek American students with high academic achievements and support them with the means necessary to complete their undergraduate education, adding "the National Innovation Conference will gather many of the geniuses of the nation and the world, together in a single forum.  Imagine the lessons these people can teach the young minds of today, who someday might become the nation's leaders."


Founded in 1998, the PHSF has been offering grants to students of Hellenic descent with high scholastic record and financial need.  In the recent years, the grants have been $250,000 annually with amounts of $10,000 to each recipient. 


The National Innovation Conference (NIC), the latest endeavor of the Greek America Foundation, will take place on June 12 in Chicago and will bring together global innovators, leaders and thinkers who will give a series of "NIC talks" interesting presentations about how they each have incorporated innovation into their professional, community and philanthropic endeavors.


"I wouldn't expect anything less from Chris Tomaras and the PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation," noted Gregory Pappas, founder of the Greek America Foundation, adding that "Chris has always been a big thinker and someone who sees the big picture and the importance of empowering our young people with the necessary resources on which to build a stronger future."


To reserve your attendance package for the NIC Conference please call the PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation at 312-357-6432 by June 4, 2010.
