The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston is pleased to offer 2023-2024 academic year scholarship opportunities for U.S. and Canadian students of Greek descent entering their second, third, or fourth year of undergraduate studies. The annual scholarships are provided by endowments generously gifted to the Charles C. Condes Trust of Illinois (four scholarships) and the St. George’s Hellenic Benefit Society of Tsamantas of Worcester, MA (two scholarships).

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 two scholarship awards are named after Stavros Bellos, the village’s greatest benefactor, and Arthur Athanasiou, a former 61-year St. George’s Society member and the driving force in establishing the Society’s scholarship program.

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

All parish priests and parish council members throughout the U.S. and Canada are kindly requested to share this information through their local parish’s print and/or electronic communications channels. Please note that all U.S. and Canadian college/university students of Greek descent are encouraged to apply.

The Boston Metropolis will recognize the scholarship recipients at the annual Metropolis Ministry Awards Banquet on June 11, 2023.

Applications will be accepted beginning March 13, 2023. The deadline for applications is April 23, 2023.

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