Fellowships

Students in Need

The Aristides G. Alexopoulos Endowment Student Fund will provide assistance in the form of small grants to students in financial need, with preference given to undergraduate and graduate students of Hellenic descent or with parents of Greek citizenship. These grants will help students achieve their academic or professional goals as well as overcome unexpected challenges. The Aristides G. Alexopoulos Endowment Students Fund was initiated by a generous gift from Sue Curtis and Nicolaos G. Alexopoulos.
