AHEPA National Educational
Constantine and Patricia
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.
The Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship is
open to graduate students who are either Greek or of Greek heritage and are enrolled in a Ph.D. 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 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 Mavroyannis Scholarship has been
awarded to eighteen recipients.
