Awards

As a charitable and educational organization, AGAPW considers the offering of Student Awards to be an important part of our mission.

We are proud to announce the establishment of our “Excellence Tuition Scholarships.”

EXCELLENCE TUITION SCHOLARSHIPS:

  • The Katerina Navab Excellence Tuition Scholarship on Humanities

The scholarships offer $1,500 each annually and are awarded to female students of Greek descent enrolled in a four year accredited Bachelor’s program in the Tri-State area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Applications are accepted between January 1st and March 15th.
The scholarships will be awarded in March in honor of AGAPW’s Greek American Woman of the Year.
