APPLICATIONS NOW AVAILABLE FOR THE CHRISTOS AND GEORGIA TRAKATELLIS FELLOWSHIP
NEW YORK – Applications for the 2016-2017 Christos and Georgia Trakatellis Fellowship are now available.
The Christos and Georgia Trakatellis Fellowship Fund was established in 2011 by His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios and his brother, Prof. Antonios Trakatellis, in memory of their parents, Christos and Georgia. The Fund offers fellowships to graduates of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology to study Greek language, Hellenic culture and liturgical practice. These studies can take place in the United States or, preferably, in Greece or at the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. The study could be part of an established academic program (Doctoral or Master Levels) or part of a free program, which should be well structured and clearly defined in view of the above stated purpose of the Fund. Candidates shall be chosen based on merit and need. The amount of the fellowship is $3,000 per semester for up to two semesters. One or more full or partial fellowships will be awarded annually.
Instructions and applications can be downloaded from the Scholarship Web Page of the Archdiocese. Candidates can request more information via email scholarships@goarch.org or by calling 212-774-0283. The deadline for submitting an application for the fellowship is May 6, 2016.
