P.G.E.I. of America Charitable Foundation, Inc. (the “Foundation”) funds scholarships for the pursuit of higher education at the college or university level by New Jersey high school graduates of Greek descent.


Eligibility for Foundation scholarships this year is limited to 2024 graduates of New Jersey high schools who are of Greek descent.  Candidates must have been admitted to a college or university that they will actually attend beginning in the Fall of 2024.


Family members of (a) the individuals serving on the committee administering the Foundation’s scholarship program (the “Committee”), (b) officers and trustees of the Foundation, and (c) officers and directors of Pan Gregorian Enterprises, Inc. are not eligible to receive Foundation scholarships.  “Family members” include a person’s spouse, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren (and any of their spouses).


The Committee shall be the sole arbiter of all matters relating to the administration of the Foundation’s scholarship program (including, without limitation, eligibility of applicants and the selection of Foundation scholarship recipients) in its sole and absolute discretion and the Committee’s decisions as to all such matters shall be final, unappealable and binding. All applications materials submitted to the Committee become Committee property and will not be returned to applicants.


Each Foundation scholarship will be paid directly to the relevant college or University on behalf of the relevant scholarship recipient by the Foundation; no scholarship funds will be paid directly to recipients.  Recipients who fail to attend the college or University they listed on their scholarship applications will forfeit their scholarships.


In 2024, it is the Foundation’s intention to award (7) scholarships: one in the amount of $5,000 (The George M. Manolios Scholarship), one for $4,000 (The John E. Sakellaris Scholarship), one for $3,000 (In Memory of Mr. George Chronis), and four for $2,000 each (In Honor of Mr. John Kallas, Mr Gus Vetsas, Mr George Siamboulis and Mr. Tom Lambros).  The total value of all scholarships to be awarded in 2024 is $20,000.00. The scholarships are for one year only.


Prior to the awarding of any scholarship, the Foundation reserves the right to modify or terminate the scholarship program, postpone, or suspend the selection of scholarship recipients or otherwise alter the scholarship program in any manner approved by the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.


All applications (complete with all attachments) must be postmarked no later than July 31st, 2024.  The Committee will make its selections by September 30th, 2024 and will notify successful applicants within a week thereafter. 


Recipients of scholarships are expected to attend the Foundation’s 2024 Gala Ball on November 10, 2024 at The Venetian in Garfield, New Jersey, where they will be introduced.
