Eleftherios and Mary Rouvelas Endowed Scholarship (show)

One scholarship awarded periodically, award amount based on spending policy set by the Board of Trustees
Open to both entering and continuing students; priority will be given to entering students

Intent of the Award

The Eleftherios and Mary Rouvelas Endowed Scholarship Fund is the consolidated fund (Sep 2013) of three endowment funds established by Emmanuel L. Rouvelas a member of the Board of Trustees of the College, and Marilyn Rouvelas, his wife, an author of books and articles related to Hellenism and Orthodoxy. The three consolidated funds were the “Eleftherios Emanuel Rouvelas Endowed Scholarship Fund” (1995), the “Mary Rouvelas Scholarship Endowed Scholarship Fund” (2000) and the “Sarbane-Marudas Endowed Scholarship Fund” (2000).

Eleftherios Emmanuel Rouvelas was born in 1915 in the village of Arhangellon, Laconia, Greece, the sixth of ten sons of Emmanuel and Panayiota (Papadakes) Rouvelas. He left home at the age of 11 and served on Greek merchant ships and in the Greek navy before migrating to America in 1939.

Mary Rouvelas was born in Seattle Washington in 1921, the eldest of five children of Socrates and Fotini Meleas Derezes, both of whom had migrated earlier from villages in the Mani area of Greece. Mary attended Seattle public schools. They were married in 1942 in Seattle, Washington and raised a family that became two children and four grandchildren. Although neither of them had much formal education, they consistently stressed education to their children and grandchildren. They deeply loved America and their Hellenic heritage and its core principles which are reflected in the American College of Greece.

Senator Paul Sarbanes (1)-MD) was the first Greek American to be elected to the United States Senate and Peter Marudas was a high level assistant to State and Federal officials for over 30 years. Both exemplify the Periclean ideals of public service.
