AHEPA District 22 has created and supported its own Educational Foundation since 1984.

"The Northwest AHEPA Family Educational Foundation is a non-profit, IRS-approved organization interested in promoting and assisting the educational endeavors of AHEPA Family Students.
The Foundation awards scholarships to students on the basis of
academic performance, community involvement, and/or financial need.
Our contribution to the educational advancement of our recipients will provide us
with tomorrow's community leaders who will continue to disseminate
the Hellenic heritage and culture to future generations".

  The Educational Foundation awards scholarships annually to members of the AHEPA Family, and to qualified members of their families, who fulfill certain Qualification Criteria.
  Each Applicant must submit an Application Packet that includes a completed Scholarship Application and related documentation.
  The Application Packet must be postmarked and submitted to the Educational Foundation by April 15 of each calendar year, else it will not be considered. If April 15 falls on a US Federal Holiday, the deadline is extended to April 16.
  The Educational Foundation will accept all submitted scholarship applications, and keep them confidential.
  Applications will be reviewed and evaluated by an independent third party (with non Greek Community or AHEPA Family affiliation). Applicants who best meet the Award Criteria will be awarded the scholarships.

Each year, AHEPA Family District 22 elects Foundation Board members, each member serving a 3 year term.

The Awards are presented at the Annual AHEPA District 22 Convention, which is usually held in June.

Recipients are strongly encouraged to attend the award ceremony.
