The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston is offering 2024-2025 academic year scholarship opportunities for US and Canadian students who are of Greek descent or of the Greek Orthodox Faith.

The scholarships will be offered to students entering their second, third, or fourth year of undergraduate studies.

The annual scholarships are provided by endowments generously gifted by the Charles C. Condes Trust of Illinois (four, one-time scholarships of $8,000 each) and the Society of Tsamantas of Worcester, MA (one, one-time scholarship of $7,500).

The Charles C. Condes Memorial Scholarships were bequeathed by Charles C. Condes, a lifelong philanthropist who was a great believer in the power of education and an admirer of all things Hellenic.

His endowment demonstrates his pride in the Greek American and Greek Canadian students who represent the future of Hellenism and Orthodox Christianity in the United States and Canada.

The St. George’s Hellenic Benefit Society of Tsamantas Scholarships was established in memory of the pioneering sons and daughters of the village of Tsamantas, Epirus, who settled in Worcester, MA at the turn of the 19th century. The 2024 scholarship award is named after Stavros Bellos, the greatest benefactor.

Applicants must be enrolled full-time in an undergraduate two or four-year degree program at an accredited college or university located in the US or Canada. Students can apply online through the Metropolis of Boston Scholarship Portal.

Applications will be accepted beginning March 1, 2024. The deadline for applications is May 6, 2024. Awards will be announced beginning on Monday, May 20, 2024.

Hi Eminence Metropolitan Methodios will recognize the scholarship recipients and make the awards at the annual Metropolis Lay Ministry Awards Banquet on Sunday evening, June 9, 2024.

The Metropolis Scholarship Committee urges youth to apply for this opportunity and looks forward to recognizing their achievements this year and for years to come.
