Faith’s Latest Academic Scholarships

Faith: An Endowment for Orthodoxy and Hellenism announces
2015 “Faith Scholarships for Academic Excellence” Program for high school seniors

Faith: An Endowment for Orthodoxy and Hellenism announced that it will once again offer the prestigious series of “Faith Scholarships for Academic Excellence.” These merit-based college scholarships provide funding to graduating high school seniors for their university studies. The application and criteria can be downloaded from the Faith website: www.faithendowment.org .
Each year since its inception in 2004, grants from Faith fund a series of merit-based and need- based scholarships to seniors ranked within the top of their graduating class at public, parochial and private high schools across the country. To date, many of the Hellenic American community’s most promising graduating high school seniors have been awarded these prestigious scholarships which range in size from $1500 – $25,000. In addition, high school valedictorians and salutatorians also receive special recognition through this series of scholarship awards as do young people wishing to focus their university studies in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math).
The “FAITH Scholarships for Excellence in STEM” series was inaugurated in 2012 at the recommendation of Faith Founder Dr. P. Roy Vagelos. These scholarships are an extension of the existing “Faith Scholarships for Academic Excellence” for students entering their freshman year at colleges and universities in the USA and award support to students for all four years of their undergraduate studies based on the recipients’ abilities to fulfill the following three criteria: major in a STEM field, maintain a 3.6 minimum GPA, and participate/service in organizations related to the Hellenic and Greek Orthodox community.
“The future of the US economy is dependent on STEM subject knowledge and mastery by our students. I know they will meet this challenge. The Founders of Faith are very pleased to support this important initiative and also support the best and brightest young people and future leaders of our community,” said FAITH Founder Dr. P. Roy Vagelos.

Earlier this spring Faith awarded sixty-four (64) financial aid travel grants to young people from all over the USA to attend Ionian Village through its Faith-Ionian Village Travel Grants Program for the 2015 summer season. Recipients of the Faith Ionian Village Travel Grants will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to experience Greece and learn more about their Hellenic heritage and Orthodox faith through visits to ancient sites, monasteries, and cultural institutions through Ionian Village.
In 2015, Faith: An Endowment for Orthodoxy and Hellenism will renew the Endowment’s partnership with the Fulbright Foundation of Greece by underwriting a series graduate and research scholarships through the prestigious US-Greece Fulbright Exchange program.
