  • All applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0
  • Residency requirements are as follows:
    • Students residing in the greater metro Atlanta area are considered for all scholarships for which
      they are eligible.
    • Students residing anywhere in the state of Georgia are eligible to apply for the graduate Nursing
      Scholarship.

      the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Atlanta who will be attending Holy Cross School of Theology.

In composing this essay, consider this excerpt from one of Mr. Economy’s keynote addresses: “At the soul of Hellenism, we find the opportunity to share in the gift of this ancestral culture, to transform ourselves from mere Greeks to Hellenes, from non-Greeks to Philhellenes, and in effect, meet our obligations to society and our fellow man by embracing its basic tenants: Philanthropy (philanthropia), brotherhood (Philadelphia), respect (philotimo), fellowship (philoxenia), and knowledge (gnosis) are but a few of these Hellenistic principles.”
  • Transcripts
    • All students must upload official copies of transcripts. These may be from an outsourced transcripts company or, if obtained directly from the school’s registrar’s office, must show seal or signature verifying an official copy.
