The Greek America Foundation is proud to announce that the Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship will be offered for the 2015-2016 academic year for the third consecutive year. The scholarship is open to Greek and Greek heritage university graduate students studying for a PhD in either theoretical physics or physical chemistry and since its inception has been awarded to four recipients. Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Constantine and Mrs. Patricia Mavroyannis, this scholarship recognizes scholastic achievement and an interest and commitment to studying theoretical physics or physical chemistry by providing partial assistance to Hellenic graduate students in financing their studies in these fields.
The Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship is open to graduate students who are either Greek or of Greek heritage and are enrolled in a PhD program in either theoretical physics or physical chemistry in the Faculty of Science at a North American university. The scholarship is in the amount of $5,000 and will be awarded in the fall semester.
The purpose of the Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship is to recognize the importance of education – specifically, to reward and encourage educational achievement by Hellenes in the fields of physics and chemistry and thereby support Hellenic contribution to the global scientific community. The scholarship honors the life and accomplishments of Dr. Constantine Mavroyannis, a career physicist with the National Research Council of Canada, and his wife Patricia.
