Assumption Church of Chicago Annual Scholarship Awards To Deserving Parish Students
Fr. Timothy, the members of the Parish Council, and the scholarship committee are pleased to announce that it will again award scholarship(s) for the 2019-20 academic year. “The Assumption Church Scholarship Fund” is available to a student entering college in the fall of 2019, or current college students. The parents of the applicants must be paid contributing members (stewards) of the Assumption Church for four (4) consecutive years leading up to 2019. Applications can be downloaded here. Further details are available by calling the Church Office (773.626.3114). Deadline to submit an application is Monday, June 24th.
Through the generosity of a bequest, the Parish Council established “The Assumption Church Scholarship” that is made available and awarded to worthy and qualified college students and seminarians attending our Greek Orthodox Seminary (who are stewards of Panagia). In addition to the initial bequest, memorial and general donations have been received and made towards this Scholarship Fund, allowing this ministry to continue and be of benefit to deserving young college bound young people.
The Scholarship Award is based upon the following criteria established by the Assumption Scholarship Fund: (1) applicant’s academic record, (2) applicant’s community service record (ecclesiastical and secular), and (3) applicant’s essay on a theme of Orthodoxy and Hellenism.
Assumption Church Scholarships for the 2018-19 academic year were awarded to Marisa Arvanites and Paul Georgopoulos.
On behalf of the Metropolis of Chicago Department of Religious Education, Presbytera Georgia Alikakos also presented to Marisa Arvanites the Reverend William S. Chiganos Religious Education Scholarship for Orthodox Youth.
