“Maintaining close ties with the Greek community is very important to me, and I was very excited to join a network of scholars who are dedicated students like myself. The FAITH Endowment is admirable in its dedication to supporting the academic pursuits of young Greek Americans, and it is an honor to be bestowed such an award by such prominent Greek Americans in our community. I am deeply impressed by the commitment of the Founders of FAITH to uniting the Greek American community and innovatively contributing to various professions from healthcare to business,” shares Adamantia M., a 2022 FAITH Scholar majoring in chemical engineering at Princeton University.

Through their shared identity and collective efforts to address rising issues facing their generation and make a difference in their communities and world, FAITH Scholars embody the scholarly intellect and academic achievement lauded by their Hellenic ancestors and the spirit of good citizenship found at the core of their Greek Orthodox values. Graduating within the top of their classes, FAITH Scholars continue their educational goals in universities across the U.S. while maintaining integral roles inside and outside the classroom as leaders in their churches, communities and campuses. Over the years, FAITH Scholars have gone on to study and work as leaders in their fields including medical school, research labs, biotech, education and the arts.
