WHO WE ARE
Dedicated to promoting education and leadership, the PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that recognizes and honors exceptional undergraduate students of Hellenic descent, supporting their efforts with significant monetary awards based on academic merit and financial need.
The Foundation is administered by a Board of Directors and an Executive Committee (Officers). A separate Advisory Board representing a range of professional disciplines provides to the Foundation guidance and support. The selection of Scholarship Award Recipients is made by an Academic Committee appointed by the Board of Directors. This Committee works independently and makes its decisions based on established criteria. Members of the Board of Directors, Officers, the Advisory Board, and employees of the Foundation may not serve on the Academic Committee.
One of the deepest and most profound roots in Hellenic tradition is education’s role in the development of civilization. More than 2,300 years ago, Aristotle proclaimed education is the best provision for life’s journey. Respecting this tradition, the PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation strives to promote the development of Greek American college students into becoming outstanding individuals through the support and advancement of their education.
Building a better America through Education and Hellenism is at the core of the Foundation’s mission, and in that spirit, we aim to strengthen our civic fabric and deliver enlightened and engaged citizens.
Nike, the goddess of victory, personifies triumph throughout ancient Greek culture. Our symbol, “Nike of Paionios,” represents our effort to see Greek American youth triumph in life through hard work, dedication and determination.
"The fountain and root of a noble life is a good education."
