The Vitos Scholarship was established by Mr. Nicholas Vitos, who was a generous supporter of both St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church and the Metropolis of San Francisco. From his humble beginnings as a young immigrant, Mr. Vitos had a heart for the struggles of the underprivileged.
The Nicholas and Mary Vitos Scholarship was established so that deserving and promising Orthodox young men and women would not want for training and education for their life's work. In keeping with Mr. Vitos' vision and dedication to the church which he loved so much, he stipulated that this scholarship be awarded to deserving young people of the St. Nicholas parish community who demonstrate dedication to God and His holy church, academic excellence, and financial need.
Mr. Vitos will always be remembered as a man of principle, conviction, and love for Christ's church. May his memory be eternal!
