Annual Support

Annual expendable gifts help Modern Greek with a variety of program enhancements, including student scholarships and awards, special materials, lectures and discussions, readings, performances, and much more.

The Foundation for Modern Greek Studies provides annual support for student scholarships, activities, and community outreach events.

The annual Dimitri and Irmgard Pallas Lecture in Modern Greek Studies promotes greater awareness of modern Greek history and its artistic, scientific, philosophical, ethical, political, and other contributions to civilization.

Since 2005, Dr. Denny Stavros, a long-time supporter of the Modern Greek Program at Michigan, has undertaken a series of annual gifts to the Hatcher Graduate Library that are used for the purchase of rare and unusual materials to enhance the Library's collection in the area of Modern Greek Studies.  He has undertaken these gifts to honor Gwendolyn Margrette Stavros, born December 15, 2005, and in memory of her grandmother, Gwendolyn McFerran Stavros (1938-1981), librarian and Philhellene.
