The Hellenic Scholarships Foundation held its Annual Awards Ceremony once again at the beautiful McGill Faculty Club in downtown Montreal on Friday, February 3, 2017 in the presence of His Excellency Ambassador of Greece to Canada Mr. George L. Marcantonatos who travelled from Ottawa for this occasion.
Twelve scholarships were awarded this year including two scholarships reserved for non-Greek students excelling in Greek Studies.
A special tribute was also made to honour three past members of the Academic Committee, namely, professors Francois Cavayas and Athena Papadakis as well as professor emeritus Anastasios Anastasopoulos. A congratulatory message from His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, was presented to them “for their exceptional work in academia and as ambassadors for Greek heritage.”

The Hellenic Scholarships Foundation is a registered Canadian charity established in 1987 and each year its board of directors invites an independent Academic Committee of professors from universities across Québec to select the recipients of its annual scholarships.
Our Annual Awards Ceremony celebrates the academic brilliance and high aspirations of our scholarship recipients, but also the lifelong achievements and service of one or more distinguished members of the Academic Committee whose careers and accomplishments are a testimony to the Foundation’s mission and who serve as an example for our students to follow.
