Hellenic College and Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology announce the establishment of two new scholarships as part of the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the founding of Hellenic College, the only fully accredited Orthodox Christian four year liberal arts institution of higher learning in America.


This scholarship provides for 80% of tuition for four years for all incoming students in Hellenic College. The purpose of this scholarship is to encourage young men and women to "come and see" what the college is all about with the confident expectation that, after experiencing the academic and Orthodox Christian environment on campus, students will want to stay for their entire course of study in the college. This sizeable tuition break is being offered for a limited time.


This 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 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.

Both the "Come and See" Scholarship and the Chryosostom Scholarship are tuition only scholarships. Room and board, books and fees are not included. $65,000 is an estimated amount based on a 5% annual inflation rate.

Eligibility for either scholarship does not guarantee admission to Hellenic College.  Regular admission requirements for the college must be met. Scholarships will be awarded when acceptance is offered. After admission students must maintain a 3.0 GPA and be in compliance with the code of conduct specified in the student handbook in order for their awards to continue beyond the first year of study. 

Prospective students are encouraged to contact the Admissions Office via this website or call (617) 850-1285 or 850-1260.
