Senior Division...first place from parish qualifies for HCHC scholarship
THE CHRYSOSTOM SCHOLARSHIPThis scholarship operates in conjunction with the St. John Chrysostom Oratorical Festival that takes place annually in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. The Chrysostom Scholarship will be awarded to the senior division first-place speaker (male or female) in each parish. This award will provide 100% of tuition for the recipient's first year of study at Hellenic College and up to 80% of tuition for the remaining three years. This is an estimated savings of more than $65,000. The Chrysostom Scholarship is intended to afford young men and women the opportunity to continue their education in an Orthodox Christian environment while also encouraging more parishes to participate in the Oratorical Festival.
