Continuing for the ninth consecutive year, “FAITH: An Endowment for Orthodoxy and Hellenism” will once again sponsor a series of financial aid travel grants this summer to campers participating in the Ionian Village Summer Camp program. FAITH provides full and partial scholarships to those participants that qualify for need-based financial aid.
Each year, Ionian Village participants travel across Greece, venerating the relics of the Saints, walking in the footsteps of the Apostles, and visiting significant sites of Greek history and culture. At the end of each program, the campers, staff and clergy return home with strengthened faith, life-long friendships based on Christian love, and an expanded appreciation for the Orthodox Church and Greek culture.
Elaine Jaharis, a Founder of the Endowment, Ionian Village Alumna and Chair of the Committee spoke on behalf of the Founders, “We (the Founders of Faith) are proud to support young people wishing to participate in Ionian Village. The Camp, provides a truly transformative and enriching experience for intellectual and spiritual growth as well as forming life-long friendships as these young people connect to their Hellenic roots. For over 40 years, Ionian Village has been and still is the premiere program for the young Greek Americans to understand their Hellenic heritage and identity and we are very pleased to offer this financial aid opportunity through our program.”
In 2014, FAITH underwrote 42 full and partial financial aid travel grants for young people to attend the Ionian Village Summer Camp. Each year, FAITH funds a series of several scholarship programs including many merit-based scholarships for the FAITH Academic Excellence Scholarships to high school students graduating from public, parochial and private high schools across the country.
FAITH – Ionian Village Travel Grant applications are now available for participants of Session One and Session Two, ages 14-18: Completed applications must be received by January 30.
FAITH: An Endowment for Orthodoxy and Hellenism supports the development of innovative educational, cultural, and scholarship programs for young people that promote an understanding of the Orthodox faith, Hellenism, and the relationship of the two to America’s history and multicultural landscape.
