STAVROS NIARCHOS FOUNDATION CONTINUES ITS COMMITMENT TO our foundation

In October 2010, the PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation was awarded two 4-year scholarships from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation totaling $80,000.  The two selected students — Mina Zissopoulos of New York University and Andreas Kalantzis of The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign — will each receive $10,000 toward their education through 2013.  Our Foundation recently awarded the 2 selected students their second installment of $10,000 each, and we thank the Stavros Niarchos Foundation for their support of education through these life-changing grants.  We congratulate Mina and Andreas and wish them continued success.
