The Chrysostom Scholarship operates in conjunction with the St. John Chrysostom Oratorical Festival that takes place annually in the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America. Beginning with the 2015 Festival, each senior and junior division first, second, and third place finalist in each category (oratory, poetry, and essay) at the parish, district, metropolis, and national levels of competition is eligible to receive a Chrysostom Scholarship to Hellenic College. This scholarship has been amended to provide awards ranging from $2,500 up to $30,000 per year. The award structure is outlined in the terms and conditions below.
The Chrysostom Scholarship is intended to give 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.
Eligibility for the Chrysostom Scholarship does not guarantee admission to Hellenic College. Regular admission requirements 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 at firstname.lastname@example.org or (617) 850-1285.
