Eleni Gatzoyiannis Scholarship Available to Greek Students at Boston University

BOSTON – Boston University is currently accepting applications for the 2022-2023 Eleni Gatzoyiannis Scholarship through May 2. The scholarship is available to fulltime undergraduate and graduate students of Greek birth or ancestry who have completed at least one semester at Boston University, are in good academic standing, and demonstrate financial need. To apply, eligible students must complete a two-page application and write a short essay.

Established in 1985, the endowed scholarship fund is a gift from Boston University alumnus Nicholas Gage (DGE’61, COM’63, Hon.’85) in honor of his mother, Eleni Gatzoyiannis. The scholarship serves to recognize and memorialize her struggle and martyrdom to protect her children’s lives and to secure their freedom against Communist guerrillas during the Greek Civil War, which resulted in her death at the guerrillas’ hands. A renowned author, Gage depicted the story of his mother’s life in a prize-winning biography Eleni, which he subsequently produced as a feature film of the same title.

A selection committee comprised of representatives from the university selects scholarship recipients on the basis of written applications. All applicants will receive notification in writing as to the decision of the committee. To obtain an Eleni Gatzoyiannis Scholarship application, contact Liberty Collom, Senior Assistant Director BU Financial Assistance, via email at [email protected].

Completed applications should be returned to Liberty Collom via e-mail by the May 2, 2022 deadline.

Founded in 1839, Boston University is an internationally recognized institution of higher education and research. With more than 33,000 students, it is the fourth-largest independent university in the United States.
