Applications now available for The Christos and Georgia Trakatellis Fellowship
Mar 6, 2012
NEW YORK – Applications for the 2012-2013 academic year are now available from the Archdiocese for The Christos and Georgia Trakatellis Fellowship and the deadline is April 20, 2012.
The Christos and Georgia Trakatellis Fellowship Fund was established in 2011 by His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios and his brother, Prof. Antonios Trakatellis in memory of their parents. The purpose of the fund is to offer Fellowships to graduates of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, who are planning to continue their studies in the Greek language, Hellenic culture and liturgical practice. This study could be part of an established Doctoral or Masters level program, or part of a free program, which, however, should be well structured and clearly defined, in view of the above stated purpose of the fund. These studies could take place here in the U.S., or preferably in Greece or the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Constantinople.
Candidates for The Christos and Georgia Trakatellis Fellowship shall be chosen based on “merit” and “need.” The amount of the Fellowship is $3,000 per semester for up to two semesters, totaling $6,000. One or more full, or partial, Fellowships will be awarded annually.
To obtain an application for the 2012-2013 academic year visit http://www.goarch.org/archdiocese/administration/chancellor/trakatellis or contact the Chancellor’s Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) tel.: (212) 774-0513. The application needs to be completed in full and together with all the necessary documentation, sent to the Chancellor’s Office by the April 20, 2012 deadline. Application does not automatically guarantee an award. Each application will be considered individually in conjunction with the supporting documentation provided by each candidate.
