Applications can be accessed by visiting http://www.goarch.org/. For more information, please email [email protected] or call 212-774-0283. The deadline for submitting an application for any of these scholarships is May 4, 2018.

George & Naouma (Gioule) Gioles Scholarship
Katina John Malta Scholarship
Paleologos Scholarship

Applications and instructions for these three scholarships administered by the Department of Philanthropy of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America are available for awards to be made for the 2018-2019 academic year. The George & Naouma (Gioule) Gioles Scholarship and the Katina John Malta Scholarship are for undergraduate studies, and the Paleologos Scholarship is awarded for graduate work of a non-theological nature. Each of these scholarships was established through generous gifts from dedicated Greek Orthodox Christians who wanted to provide financial assistance towards the education of young people from our Orthodox Christian community.

The Christos and Georgia Trakatellis Fellowship

Applications are also available for a fellowship from The Christos and Georgia Trakatellis Fellowship Fund for the 2018-2019 academic year. This Fund was established in 2011 by His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios and his brother, Prof. Antonios Trakatellis, in memory of their parents, Christos and Georgia.

The Fund, overseen by the Chancellor’s Office, offers fellowships to graduates of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology to study Greek language, Hellenic culture and liturgical practice. These studies can take place in the United States or, preferably, in Greece or at the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.  The study could be part of an established academic program (Doctoral or Master Levels) or part of a free program, which should be well structured and clearly defined in view of the above stated purpose of the Fund. Candidates shall be chosen based on merit and need. The amount of the fellowship is $3,000 per semester for up to two semesters. One or more full or partial fellowships will be awarded annually.

The S. Gregory Taylor Scholarship

The Taylor Scholarship Fund offers financial assistance to students pursuing a post-graduate degree in the areas of theology, religious studies, or pastoral training.  The Chancellor’s Office of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America oversees the Fund and awards scholarships on an annual basis. Awarding of scholarships will be determined based on program of study, financial need, previous academic work, recommendations, availability of funds and how the applicant intends to serve the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America after receiving this degree.  Scholarships are awarded for actual course work being done towards a post-graduate degree (an initial graduate-level degree is required).  As per the guidelines of the Fund, preference will be given to graduates of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology.
