The Chancellor’s Office of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America is pleased to announce that applications are now available to apply for a Fellowship from The Christos and Georgia Trakatellis Fellowship Fund. This fund was set up in 2011 by His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios and his brother, Prof. Antonios Trakatellis, in memory of their parents, Christos and Georgia. The fund offers Fellowships to graduates of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology who are planning to continue their studies in the Greek language, Hellenic culture and liturgical practice. This study could be part of an established Doctoral or Masters level program, or part of a free program, which, however, should be well structured and clearly defined in view of the above stated purpose of the fund. These studies could take place here or preferably in Greece or the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Constantinople.
Candidates for Fellowships shall be chosen based on “merit” and “need.” The amount of the Fellowship is $3,000 per semester for up to two semesters, totaling $6,000. One or more full, or partial, Fellowships will be awarded annually.
Complete instructions and applications are now available on the website of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America www.goarch.org/archdiocese/administration/chancellor/2013. Or, candidates can contact the Chancellor’s Office (by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (212) 774-0513) and request an application. The application needs to be completed in full and together with all the necessary documentation, sent to the Chancellor’s Office by the April 26, 2013 deadline. Application does not automatically guarantee an award. Each application will be considered individually in conjunction with the supporting documentation provided by each candidate.
