The Greek America Foundation is proud to announce that the Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship recipients for 2019 are Konstantinos Roumpedakis of Stony Brook University and Georgios Styliaris of the University of Southern California.
Both students are of Greek heritage. Each student will receive an award of $5,000 to support doctoral research in physics for the 2019-2020 academic year.
Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis would like to congratulate Konstantinos and Georgios on their exceptional academic achievements in the field of theoretical physics.
About Konstantinos Roumpedakis
Konstantinos is in his fifth year studying theoretical physics at Stony Brook University. His research project is classifying quantum spin-liquids with time-reversal symmetry.
About Georgios Styliaris
Georgios is in his fourth year studying theoretical physics at the University of Southern California. His research area is quantum coherence and localization in quantum systems.
About the Mavroyannis Scholarship
The Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship is open to graduate students who are either Greek or of Greek heritage and are enrolled in a PhD program in either theoretical physics or physical chemistry in the faculty of science at a North American university. The $5,000 scholarship is awarded on an annual basis in the fall semester.
The purpose of the Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship is to recognize the importance of education. Specifically, it aims to reward and encourage educational achievement and support Greeks’ contributions to the global scientific community.
The scholarship honors the life and accomplishments of Dr. Constantine Mavroyannis, a career physicist with the National Research Council of Canada, and his wife Patricia.
Since 2013, the Greek America Foundation has awarded $90,000 in scholarships to 18 students in theoretical physics — thanks to the generosity of the Mavroyannis family.
