The PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation Celebrates the 2016 Scholarship Award Recipients


The PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation is excited to announce that our 2016 Scholarship Award winners have been selected from among the best and brightest Greek American students in the country. We are looking forward to celebrating the remarkable achievements of our scholarship recipients at the upcoming Awards Ceremony and Gala. These deserving students will collectively receive $250,000 in awards.


The deadline for submitting scholarship applications was February 1, and undergraduates of Hellenic descent applied from universities across the country. This year's exceptional scholarship recipients are students at the most reputable schools in the nation, including Harvard, Brown, Dartmouth, Northwestern, the University of California-Berkeley, the University of Pennsylvania, Georgetown, the Manhattan School of Music, the University of Michigan, the University of Texas, and the University of Illinois. Our scholarship winners are also students of various academic disciplines, including engineering, mathematics, chemistry, business, education, economics, communications, music, and the arts.


The Foundation's Academic Committee diligently spent countless hours evaluating the applications and selecting this year's award recipients. We would like to take this opportunity to extend a special thank you and commend the Academic Committee for their hard work and dedication.


The scholarship recipients will be celebrated at the Awards Ceremony and Gala on Saturday, June 18, 2016 at the Ritz-Carlton, Chicago. The event will also be held in honor of our Founder, the late Chris P. Tomaras, with the theme, “Preserving the Legacy." At the gala, a cocktail reception will be followed by the ceremony, where the scholarship winners will receive their awards. Dinner and dancing will follow. The talented Chris Sarlas Orchestra will entertain our guests, and they will be joined by popular local singer and guest performer John Panopoulos.


Tickets are $250 per person and tables of ten are available. Please join us to honor the memory of Mr. Tomaras and celebrate the great accomplishments of our scholarship recipients. To reserve your gala tickets, visit or call our office at (312) 357-6432. We look forward to seeing you there!
