The AHEPA National Educational Foundation is proud to announce the 2021 Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship recipients. They are Georgia (Greta) Koumarianou of the University of California, Santa Barbara, and Ian MacCormack of the University of Chicago. Both recipients are of Greek heritage. Each student will receive an award of $5,000 to support doctoral research in theoretical physics or physical chemistry for the 2021-2022 academic year.

“We congratulate Georgia and Ian on their outstanding academic accomplishments, and they are well-deserving recipients of the prestigious Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship,” Supreme President Jimmy Kokotas and National Educational Foundation Chair George Vorkas said in a joint statement, “We are proud to be working with the Mavroyannis Family to encourage educational achievement by Hellenes in the fields of physics and chemistry and look forward to the recipients’ continued successes in the field.”

Dr. Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis established the Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship in 2013 in order to provide financial support to Hellenic students pursuing PhD programs in theoretical physics or physical chemistry. Since its establishment, including this year’s recipients, Dr. and Mrs. Mavroyannis will have personally funded $115,000 in scholarships to support 23 PhD students in these fields. The Mavroyannis family would like to congratulate Greta and Ian on their exceptional academic achievements in the fields of theoretical physics and physical chemistry.

About Georgia (Greta) Koumarianou

Greta is in her third year studying physical chemistry at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her research area is using spectrometry to develop novel instrumentation and methods to study chiral molecules.

About Ian MacCormack

Ian is in his fifth year studying theoretical physics at the University of Chicago. His research area is quantum entanglement and dynamics in many-body quantum systems.

The Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship is open to graduate students who are either Greek or of Greek heritage and are enrolled in a PhD program in either theoretical physics or physical chemistry in the Faculty of Science at a North American university. The scholarship is in the amount of $5,000 and is awarded on an annual basis in the fall semester.

The purpose of the Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship is to recognize the importance of education – specifically, to reward and encourage educational achievement by Hellenes in the fields of physics and chemistry and thereby support Hellenic contribution to the global scientific community. The scholarship honors the life and accomplishments of Dr. Constantine Mavroyannis and his wife Patricia.

Dr. Constantine Mavroyannis, an immigrant from Greece, achieved the seemingly unachievable – earning postdoctoral fellowships to complete PhDs from both McGill University and Oxford University – each in less than two years. He then became a career theoretical physicist at the National Research Council of Canada, publishing 140 scientific papers and teaching post-graduate PhD students from around the globe, continuing post retirement as a Physicist Emeritus at NRC’s Steacie Institute for Molecular Sciences.
