EDUCATION

2020 Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship
Recipients Announced
The AHEPA National Educational Foundation is proud to announce
three recipients of the Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis
Scholarship for 2020. They are: Dimitrios Kosmopoulos, University
of California-Los Angeles (UCLA); Georgios Palkanoglou, University
of Guelph, Canada; and Maria Papageorgiou, University of
Waterloo, Canada and the University of Patras, Greece. Each student will receive a $5,000 award to support doctoral research
in physics for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Dr. Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis established the
Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship in 2013 in
order to provide financial support to Hellenic students pursuing PhD programs in theoretical physics or physical chemistry.
Since its establishment, including this year's recipients, Dr.
and Mrs. Mavroyannis will have personally funded $105,000
in scholarships to support 21 PhD students in these fields.
The Mavroyannis family would like to congratulate Dimitrios,
Georgios, and Maria on their exceptional academic achievements in the field of theoretical physics.
" We congratulate Dimitrios, Georgios, and Maria on their
outstanding academic accomplishments, and they are well-deserving recipients of the prestigious Constantine and Patricia
Mavroyannis Scholarship, " Supreme President George G.
Horiates and National Educational Foundation Chair George
Vorkas said in a joint statement, " We are proud to be working with the Mavroyannis Family to encourage educational
achievement by Hellenes in the fields of physics and chemistry and look forward to the recipients' continued successes
in the field. "

About Dimitrios Kosmopoulos
Dimitrios is in his fifth year studying theoretical physics at
UCLA. His research project involves calculating scattering
amplitudes in quantum field theory.

About Georgios Palkanoglou
Georgios is in his third year studying theoretical physics at the
University of Guelph, Canada. His research area is developing a
general model to describe bound states of alpha particles.

About Maria Papageorgiou
Maria is in her fifth year studying theoretical physics at the
University of Waterloo, Canada with a co-enrollment at the

University of Patras, Greece. She is the first University of
Patras doctoral student to ever be co-enrolled in another North
American university. Her research area is superluminal signaling in detector models within quantum field theory.
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 $5,000 and it is
awarded on an annual basis in the fall semester.

The purpose of the Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis
Scholarship is to recognize the importance of education, and
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 and his wife Patricia.
Dr. Constantine Mavroyannis, an immigrant from Greece,
who achieved the seemingly unachievable-earning postdoctoral fellowships to complete PhDs from both McGill University
and Oxford University-each in less than two years. He then
became a career theoretical physicist at the National Research
Council of Canada, publishing 140 scientific papers and teaching post-graduate PhD students from around the globe, continuing post retirement as a Physicist Emeritus at NRC's Steacie
Institute for Molecular Sciences.
