AHEPA District 10 Educational Foundation Awards $58,500 in Scholarships

June 8, 2018

ANN ARBOR, MI – At the AHEPA District 10 Convention Banquet, held at the St. Nicholas Church Hall in Ann Arbor on May 19, the Educational Foundation presented scholarship awards of $1,000-$5,000 to 37 high school and college students for a total of $58,500 in scholarships.

Educational Foundation Chairman George Mortis spoke with The National Herald about the event, noting that “the District 10 Educational Foundation is one of the oldest, most active, and strongest foundations in the country, offering scholarships to students of Greek descent every year. Since its inception in 1976, it has offered a total of over $610,000 to 633 students.”

“The recipients are all very deserving students, with high grades, a variety of community services, and strong beliefs to the mission and ideals of AHEPA and the Daughters of Penelope,” Mortis told TNH.

“The scholarships,” he continued, “come from generous donors who have established endowment perpetual funds in their name or the name of a loved one. The awards are offered only from the dividends of the invested funds thus maintaining the perpetuity of the fund.”

More information is available by contacting the Executive Secretary, Milton Gust, by phone: 248-689-4156 or email: imgust@yahoo.com.
