Our Next Event, Application and More…

 

The PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation is proud to announce that our program for academic excellence will be granted again to Greek-American undergraduate students. The Foundation will be meeting in the spring of 2011, with its Board of Directors, Academic Committee and Advisory Board to finalize the plans for the scholarship awards of the 2011-2012 school years.

 

At that time an announcement will be made regarding the scholarship application and submission particulars, the Awards Gala dates, PanHellenic Honors Society activities and other information relating to the Foundation.

 

PanHellenic Honors Society

 

As has been the practice, all award recipients are automatically inducted into the PanHellenic Honors Society (PHS), the elite network where all members can keep in contact with one another and engage as a tight group as they prepare to go forward in pursuit of their life endeavors. Members of the PHS also keep the Foundation apprised on their activities, so that a record is kept of their progress.

 

To facilitate the scope of work of the PHS, the Foundation is planning a conference for all PHS members currently proposed for June 10-12 in Chicago. Organizational efforts are under way and members are invited to respond regarding their participation. Other than travel expenses, all other costs will be covered by the Foundation.

 

This is a significant conference for the PHS and its members. The agenda will cover key regulatory issues such as structure, by-laws, governance, election of officers and formation of committees. Members are advised to respond about their availability and attendance. Their response is not binding at this point, but it is needed now as it will give us an idea about the right date selection, attendance and other information.

 

Our Students' Gratitude

 

We are overwhelmed with joy at seeing the response of our recipients as they demonstrate their sentiments of gratitude and fulfillment. Shown below are excerpts from their writings. More are available on our website.
