The recipients, chosen by the CCF Scholarship Committee, come from various prestigious institutions, including NYU, Harvard, Princeton, and others.
Elena Anastasiou Rossi, Chairwoman of the Fund, emphasized their commitment to providing scholarship support despite challenging circumstances. She noted that the recipients are pursuing diverse fields of study, ranging from theology to law, medicine, and technology.
Nicos Zittis, President of the Cyprus Children's Fund, expressed their dedication to offering scholarships to students of Hellenic descent in the United States. The scholarship recipients were chosen for their academic and non-academic achievements.
