10 Winners of $10,000 PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation Grants Selected!
All applicants to be notified of results by mail

10/18/2005

CHICAGO, IL - Oct. 18, 2005    The Nation's ten "best and brightest" Greek-American students, each of whom will receive a $10,000 Scholarship Grant from the PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation, have been evaluated by its Academic Committee and the Board of Directors and notified via overnight express.

 

 

 

"With six times the number of applications of 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 Dr. George Alexopoulos. "The high quality of the applicants should make Hellenes everywhere very proud, and I'm pleased that the Board of Directors has decided to send 'Certificates of Commendation' to the ten runners-up."  Foundation founder and Chairman Chris P. Tomaras says the names will be announced, "at the Gala in Chicago on Oct. 29, and not before."

 

Tomaras also reminds everyone that are still several opportunities open for contributors or organizations to endow a Scholarship with the name of their own choice.  "Every donation is welcome, regardless of the amount," continued 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."
