Do you know the meaning of Philotimo? Well, this concept is the hardest to explain, but it has a lot of impact on the world. Here is an incredible chance to participate in a valuable competition and win a scholarship. The Washington Oxi Day Foundation is eagerly inviting applications for its 2020 Philotimo Scholarships. The Washington Oxi Day Foundation is offering five college scholarships to Greek-American students in grades of 6 to 12 who best describe the concept of “Philotimo”.
The mission of the foundation is to introduce the students with a promising concept of Philotimo, which will help them succeed throughout their lives. These programs encourage students to study Greek culture and help them in their education by providing them with financial assistance. These competitions aim to motivate students to study and learn about the amazing concepts of Greek culture and support them in achieving their goals by reducing some financial stress.
The Washington Oxi Day Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to informing American policymakers and the public about the profound role Greece played in bringing about the outcome of the World War II and celebrating modern-day heroes who exhibit the same courage as the Greeks did in continuing to fight to preserve and promote freedom and democracy around the world. The foundation has brought several donors to support the education of the children.
