The Alpha Omega Council honors its late founder Peter Agris by presenting the Peter Agris Memorial Scholarships annually to several young Greek-Americans pursuing studies in the fields of journalism or communications. The Scholarship program, conducted in cooperation with the Agris family, celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2017 and since its inception has provided more than a half a million dollars in critical funding to aspiring Greek-American students from across this nation.
