Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship Opportunity

WASHINGTON, DC – The AHEPA National Educational Foundation, in partnership with the Mavroyannis family, is proud to continue to meet its commitment to make higher education affordable and accessible with the availability of the Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship, announced Supreme President George G. Horiates and National Educational Foundation Chairman George Vorkas on July 9. 

The Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship is open to graduate students who are either Greek or of Greek heritage and are enrolled in a PhD program in either theoretical physics or physical chemistry in the Faculty of Science at a North American university. The scholarship is in the amount of $5,000 and will be awarded in the fall semester. 

Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Constantine and Mrs. Patricia Mavroyannis, this scholarship recognizes scholastic achievement and an interest and commitment to studying theoretical physics or physical chemistry by providing financial assistance to Hellenic graduate students to pursue their studies in these fields. 

The purpose of the Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship is to recognize the importance of education – specifically, to reward and encourage educational achievement by Hellenes in the fields of physics and chemistry and thereby support Hellenic contribution to the global scientific community. The scholarship honors the life and accomplishments of Dr. Constantine Mavroyannis, an internationally renowned career theoretical physicist with the National Research Council of Canada, and his wife, Patricia. 

Supreme President George G. Horiates stated, “We are proud to be able to partner with the Mavroyannis family and assist in providing this wonderful gift to students who qualify. For nearly 100 years, AHEPA has advocated for educational advancement by providing more than one million dollars annually in scholarships. We thank all of our members for their staunch support of education.” 

Since its inception, the scholarship has been awarded to eighteen recipients.
