Over the years, many applicants have contacted the Kulis Foundation with questions regarding the application, required submission materials and the application process. Applicants are strongly encouraged to review the following frequently asked questions before contacting the Kulis Foundation:
No. The student seeking scholarship assistance is the individual that must fill out, complete and submit the application and personal statement. Applications completed by someone other than the student applicant will not be considered for a scholarship award.
No. Only applications that are postmarked by or received on or before April 1 will be eligible for consideration for a scholarship award in the upcoming year.
Yes. Any significant change in your decision or financial ability to pursue your college, graduate or professional school education should be immediately communicated in writing to the Kulis Foundation.
No. Applicants may only apply for and be awarded one scholarship. If you are eligible to apply for more than one scholarship, the Kulis Foundation’s Scholarship Committee will review your application and determine which scholarship, in its sole discretion, to consider you for.
Yes. We encourage all persons who will be attending college, graduate or professional school after a significant break in time in the Fall of an upcoming Academic Year to apply for a scholarship.
Maybe. The Kulis Foundation can only disperse scholarship awards to “eligible education institutions”. The Internal Revenue Service defines an “eligible educational institution” as “a school offering higher education beyond high school. It is any college, university, trade school, or other post-secondary educational institution eligible to participate in a student aid program run by the U.S. Department of Education. This includes most accredited public, nonprofit and privately-owned–for-profit postsecondary institutions.” Only schools outside the United States that have a connection with a United States based eligible education institution will be recognized by the Kulis Foundation.
Yes. Submit a note with your scholarship application stating that the acceptance letter is pending. Once the acceptance letter is received submit the acceptance letter to the Kulis Foundation.
Submit all acceptance letters with your application along with a note stating that you have not made a final decision with respect to the school you will be attending. You must also submit the cost of attendance for each school you are considering along with a budget for the average cost of attendance of those schools.
Documents such as passports, visa and birth certificates that show that you, your parents, or your grandparents were born in Greece.
Yes. Applicants with transcripts, letters of recommendation and other documents required with the scholarship application must be submitted in English translation, with the translation being performed by someone that is certified to perform the translation.
No. Only high school seniors entering their freshmen year of college are required to submit ACT/SAT test scores.
No. If you are a first-year graduate or professional school scholarship applicant, then you need to submit your test scores from any graduate tests you have taken (Ex. GRE, LSAT, MCAT etc.)
Yes. A scholarship applicant may submit letters of recommendation from individuals that previously submitted letters of recommendation. However, the same letters of recommendation cannot be submitted. The individual must submit a new and updated letter of recommendation
No. Scholarship applicants must complete a new application for each academic year they are seeking a scholarship.
No. Only students attending an eligible educational institution for a full academic year are eligible to apply for a scholarship.
No. Only students attending an eligible educational institution for a full academic year on a full-time basis are eligible to apply for a scholarship.
The Kulis Foundation’s decisions on scholarship awards are made by July 15th of each year. Scholarship applicants are advised in writing of the decision on their scholarship application shortly thereafter.
Due to the number of scholarship applications received annually, the Kulis Foundation is unable to address oral or written inquiries and advise applicants on the status of the review process.
