In his capacity as the chief guardian of the Sima Andrejević-Igumanov Endowment, His Holiness Patriarch Porfirije of Serbia recently announced the granting of scholarships to more than a dozen students from large families.

Each of the 13 recipients has four or more siblings, and each will receive 180,000 dinar ($1,620), reports the Serbian Patriarchate.

The scholarship fund originates from the contributions of Dragan and Milovan Popović from Belgrade.

The Endowment, named after the 19th-century Kosov Serb donor who helped students study in Belgrade and at the seminary in Prizren, Kosovo, held a competition from September 26 to October 25 to determine the most worthy and most needy students.

The Archdiocese of Belgrade has also announced a competition for the annual awarding of scholarships to students in their last year of college in the departments of medicine, philosophy, law, electrical engineering, and theology.
