Gioles Scholarship Applications now being Accepted

Applications are now available for scholarships to be awarded from the George and Naouma (Gioule) Gioles Scholarship Fund of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.

Established in 1997 through a generous gift in memory of George and Naouma Gioles, the fund is offering at least three $1500.00 scholarships for the 2004-05 academic year. Members of parishes of the Orthodox Church in America are encouraged to apply for the scholarship.

Orthodox Christian high school seniors or full-time matriculated students committed to serious study in an undergraduate degree program at an accredited college or university may apply for the scholarship. Candidates must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States, plan to attend or continue their studies at the college or university of their choice in the next academic year, and provide evidence of scholastic standing, including transcript records with a grade level of at least a B, 85 percent or 3.0 average. High school seniors must provide proof of a combined SAT minimum score of 1,000. If the SAT is not administered, another measure used by the academic community should be substituted. Candidates must be available for an interview at the Committee’s discretion.

In addition to these requirements, candidates must provide evidence of financial need, and preference will be given to candidates who are orphans and to those undertaking studies in the sciences, business and the arts. One scholarship will be reserved for a candidate studying journalism.
