Scholarships

The Greek Students’ Association at the University of Toronto is pleased to announce that it has launched a scholarship fund to support its two annual scholarships: The Andrea Christidis Memorial Scholarship and The Maria Vernezos Memorial Scholarship, previously known as The GSA Scholarship of Excellence. Our goal is to reward students of Hellenic descent for their dedication to their communities and support them with the costs associated with post-secondary education. We hope that you can support us in funding these scholarships for the 2021-2022 academic year and to create a foundation for years to come.
