The Awards


Scholarship awards are offered annually to recognize and reward students who have demonstrated exceptional academic performance, as well as to provide meaningful support to those with great financial need. By recognizing the achievements of outstanding students, the PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation encourages the very best of our young Hellenes to continue their scholarly pursuit and strive to accomplish their highest goals. Each year the Foundation awards $250,000 in Scholarships. $20,000 of the $250,000 are allocated to the Music and Arts made possible by the late George and Angela Paterakis.

The Awards of $250,000 are offered at two levels:

  • Twenty (20) Awards of $10,000 based on academic achievement and financial need.

  • Twenty (20) Awards of $2,500 based solely on academic achievement.

The selection of award recipients is made by an Academic Committee appointed by the Foundation’s Board of Directors. This Committee works independently and makes its decisions based on established criteria set forth in the scholarship application. Undergraduate students of Hellenic descent who are enrolled in an accredited university in any of the 50 United States are eligible to apply. The application opens in October of each year and can be accessed directly on our website.
