Undergraduate students are eligible for the George N. Reveliotis Family Endowment scholarships when studying abroad in Greece through an approved program such as the Illinois in Athens program or a short-term program such as an archaeological field school (see sample programs below). Applicants are required to demonstrate scholastic excellence in Classics and a keen interest in Hellenism. This year’s (2023-2024) scholarships start at a minimum of $2500. The first round of applications for Summer & Fall programs are due February 15, 2024. There will be a second round of applications due April 1, 2024.

He serves as the president of the Pan-Arcadian Federation of America and a board member of the Greek American Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
