Building Our Future Through Scholarships
In 1960 , spearheaded by several dedicated members of AHEPA family, the dream of a scholarship program was realized. Members of the AHEPA family contributed monies in the form of membership to the scholarship fund by donating a $100.00 to place their names on what is called the Scholarship Plaque. In 1962 the scholarship fund began awarding scholarships from the income generated each year from these donations. As the fund continue to grow, the decision to formalize the fund was made in 2000. In 2000 to better reflect our tax exempt status, the fund’s name was changed to AHEPA
DISTRICT SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION.
As a tax-exempt foundation, the number of scholarships awarded is based upon the amount of income derived from investments and also one time donations earmarked for a current scholarship. The foundation’s goal is to be able to provide a scholarship for all qualified. Perpetual scholarships funds are established when a donor or a group of donors, deposit cash or securities with the AHEPA Scholarship Foundation.
