The AHEPA National Educational Foundation is proud to announce three recipients of the Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship for 2020. They are: Dimitrios Kosmopoulos, University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA); Georgios Palkanoglou, University of Guelph, Canada; and Maria Papageorgiou, University of Waterloo, Canada and the University of Patras, Greece. Each student will receive a $5,000 award to support doctoral research in physics for the 2020-2021 academic year.

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 $105,000 in scholarships to support 21 PhD students in these fields. The Mavroyannis family would like to congratulate Dimitrios, Georgios, and Maria on their exceptional academic achievements in the field of theoretical physics.

“We congratulate Dimitrios, Georgios, and Maria on their outstanding academic accomplishments, and they are well-deserving recipients of the prestigious Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship,” Supreme President George G. Horiates 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.”

About Dimitrios Kosmopoulos

Dimitrios is in his fifth year studying theoretical physics at UCLA. His research project involves calculating scattering amplitudes in quantum field theory.

About Georgios Palkanoglou

Georgios is in his third year studying theoretical physics at the University of Guelph, Canada. His research area is developing a general model to describe bound states of alpha particles.

About Maria Papageorgiou

Maria is in her fifth year studying theoretical physics at the University of Waterloo, Canada with a co-enrollment at the University of Patras, Greece. She is the first University of Patras doctoral student to ever be co-enrolled in another North American university. Her research area is superluminal signaling in detector models within quantum field theory.

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 $5,000 and it 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, and 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, who 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.
