Holy Trinity Hellenic Orthodox Church – Lowell, Massachusetts
Philoptochos “Pantanassa” Society 2023 Scholarships
Mary V. Kiafas Scholarship
Forms will be available in the Church Narthex in mid-March, or, you may call or email the Church Office to request an application packet.
There are many scholarships for those interested in finding them. Scholarships are based on everybody’s own experiences, and also tied to their future goals.
Before applying or doing your own searching online, do the following note taking:
1.) Write down all of the things you have done (similar to a resume, but focus also on extra-curricular activities you think may not matter eg: delivering newspapers, if your parents are members of clubs or organizations).
2.) Write down all of the areas you might be interested in exploring or pursuing in the future. (Do you want to be a doctor, do you love history, is art your passion?
3.) Important relevant information: city you reside in, schools and/or camps you’ve attended, classes you have taken, organization/club memberships and any other similar information, (conferences attended, cities visited).
Some Scholarships are based on your experiences, some are based on your parents’ experiences or memberships and some are based on testing, merit, future interests or hobbies.
Before starting a “fresh search” you should look into previous renewed Scholarships. Most scholarships renew annually.
