The Christos and Georgia Trakatellis Fellowship for 2014-15

NEW YORK – The Christos and Georgia Trakatellis Fellowship Fund applications for the 2014-2015 academic year are now available  from the Chancellor’s Office of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.

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 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.

Instructions and applications can be downloaded from the website of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America at www.goarch.org. Candidates can request more information via email ([email protected]) or phone (212-774-0283). The deadline for submitting an application for the fellowship is April 25, 2014.
