Student Scholarship of the Holy Cross Greek School

The Greek school of Belmont believes that learning is a lifelong process. Our ancient philosophers said “Γηράσκω αεί Διδασκόμενος” which means “I Always Learn as I Age””. Education is both intellectually and morally intertwined with self-esteem and discipline. The goal of the scholarship committee is to promote the Greek language and/or culture. Thus we are offering one award of $1000.00 each calendar year to a student pursuing studies in the Greek language or leadership in activities promoting the Greek heritage.

The committee will consider the following proposed activities:

  • Attend an educational summer program in Greece

  • Attend a school / college / university in Greece

  • Attend college/university in the USA and participate in a Greek Studies program, or

  • Lead a project enhancing the Greek language or culture in the USA
