Join us in Celebrating our 2015 Scholarship Award Recipients

The PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation is proud to announce that the 2015 Scholarship Award recipients have been chosen. These 40 exceptional Greek American college students were evaluated and selected by the Academic Committee to receive $250,000 in scholarships based on academic merit and financial need. The recipients hail from across the United States and attend such prestigious universities as Harvard, Columbia, the University of Michigan, and many more—with majors ranging from pre-med to film and chemical engineering to international relations, among others. Here at the Foundation, we know that there is no greater financial investment in one's future than in a college degree.

 

Please join us at the Hilton Chicago to applaud our talented scholars at the Awards Ceremony and Gala on Saturday, June 20, 2015.  It will be a joyous event not only for our outstanding recipients, but for all of our supporters in attendance, as we celebrate another year of offering life-changing opportunities to Greek-American youth.  Click here to purchase event tickets or call (312) 357-6432.

 

Pack your Bags: Hellenic Birthright Students Selected

In addition to the 2015 scholarship award recipients, the results are in for the 2015 Hellenic Birthright sponsored students. Hellenic Birthright is the Foundation's cultural enrichment and educational program offered in cooperation with Anatolia College in Thessaloniki. This unique study-abroad experience will allow 20 students to visit their ancestral home for the very first time while gaining 3 transferable college credits.

 

This year's program takes place from June 19 - July 19, and participants will gain a once-in-a-lifetime immersive experience while visiting historical landmarks, experiencing the local culture and cuisine, and taking in the breathtaking beauty of the birthplace of democracy. Participants will also have the spiritual experience of meeting His All Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew in Constantinople.
