Helene Tzitsikas Scholarship Fund
Thanks to a very generous gift from the estate of the late Dr. Helene Tzitsikas (which eventually grew to $224,139.00) Saint Demetrios is pleased to announce the establishment of a permanently endowed scholarship fund to be known as the “Helene Tzitsikas Scholarship Fund.” Income from this fund shall be used to provide scholarships to deserving students with preference to students studying Greek, Spanish or French, to be selected by St. Demetrios. Under the direction of the St. Demetrios Parish Council, the Education, Youth and Cultural Committee (EYCC) designed the parameters of the scholarship and will manage the application, selection and award process. This year, a $ 1,500.00 will be awarded to one or more deserving students. Visit the St. Demetrios website at stdemetrios.org to apply before the May 1st deadline.
