The PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation Hosts

2019 Alumni Weekend from June 14 – June 16 in Chicago,

Continuing its Legacy of Going Beyond a Scholarship


It’s an exciting time for The PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation (PHSF) and its scholarship recipients. In just over a week, the Foundation’s annual Awards Ceremony & Gala will take place to recognize 40 of the country’s top Hellenic scholars, but equally important, PHSF will also host its third annual mentorship luncheon, which is a key way the organization goes beyond a scholarship to provide year-round support to its recipients.

Thanks for reading Hellenic News of America

Mentorship is a major piece of the professional journey for students, and by leveraging the scholarship society of PHSF, the organization is paving the way for the next generation of bright Hellenic leaders. The PHSF will host its third annual mentorship luncheon on June 15 as well with industry leaders from a variety of fields including, banking, medicine and tech.

Through these initiatives, it’s apparent that PHSF is striving to go far beyond its traditional scholarships by providing much more than financial assistance.

The weekend event kicks off on Friday, June 14 with a Welcome Reception at the law firm Holland & Knight where students network and acclimate, followed by a downtown Chicago trolley tour. The night ends with a party at Greektown’s 9 Muses. The Welcome Reception is generously sponsored by Holland & Knight and College Year in Athens (CYA).

Saturday, June 15 begins with the Mentorship Luncheon at the University Club of Chicago from 11 am – 2 pm. The event is generously sponsored by The Hellenic Initiative (THI) and is being held in partnership with the PHSF for the third consecutive year. In attendance will be industry leaders in banking, wealth management, medicine, law, stem, business, tech, international diplomacy and entrepreneurship who are changing the shape of the future. The event continues to expand in the caliber of attendees and the expectations for its mentors.

This year’s PHSF Gala & Awards Ceremony will take place on June 15 at the Hilton Chicago and will award 40 talented Greek American undergraduates with a total of $250,000 in scholarship awards. To meet the 2019 scholarship recipients, visit

The Paradigm Award Honoree for this year will be Matina Kolokotronis, the Chief Operating Officer of the Sacramento Kings. The Paradigm Award is given annually to a distinguished Greek American whose career and accomplishments are a testimony to the Foundation’s mission and who the scholars can strive to emulate.

Stay tuned for a full recap, pictures and more in the coming weeks. For more information, check out PHSF’s website here:
