Attorney General's "Triple C Award" & Philo4Thought College-Bound Scholarship
Part of Philo4Thought's annual funding is dedicated to providing assistive support to a college-bound high school Junior/Senior who has overcome major financial or medical hardship to excel in school and contribute to meaningful advancements in the Hellenic Community.
This scholarship is provided in conjunction with the Attorney General's "Triple C Award" in recognition of a student's Courage, Character & Commitment to Service despite his/her personal circumstances. The award is indicative of a student's good character, determination to succeed, ability to manage his/her time and responsibilities, and commitment to lead and inspire others, The Triple C Award may improve a student's chances of getting into his/her first choice college while the modest Philo4Thought Scholarship has been used to help cover college application fees, SAT preparatory courses and related training/services.
