“I cannot imagine being successful in college without the help of PIP Mouyiaris Scholarship. I am currently a sophomore in SUNY New Paltz and the PIP Mouyiaris Scholarship has been helping on the road to success for two years now. Thanks to this wonderful scholarship, I was able to buy my school supplies, textbooks and pay off my loans. This scholarship gave me the opportunity to not only attend school but be prepared for it as well. What I love about this award is that it motivates me to keep my grades up. The scholarship is not only given to anyone, it is given to determined and hardworking students that are focusing on a bright future. Without this award, I would have some difficulties going away to college such as finding a way to buy my textbooks and supplies. The PIP Mouyiaris Scholarship showed me that I have the ability to be a successful college student even if I am not financially prepared for it. It also gave me the chance to work towards my future and further my education and for that I am eternally grateful.”

Again, thanks so much for your generous award.”

“Receiving the Pip Mouyiaris Scholarship instills confidence in my academic abilities. It shows that Mana Products has support for me and wants me to succeed in my academic career. Plus, it also helps to take off some of the burden of the monetary pressures at school, allowing me to concentrate more on my school pursuits. I am very grateful to receive this award.”

“Not many people have the opportunity to attend college, let alone to have a part of the cost covered. I appreciate the comfort that the PIP Mouyiaris Scholarship brings me as I can fully focus on my studies knowing that part of the cost will be covered. Everyone has their own reason to why they attend college, my reason is to not take for granted the sacrifices that my parents have made for me. I take pride in the fact that they are hard laborers who work countless hours in order to provide for me and my siblings. I cannot imagine the stress they must go through, but despite that, they have stood by me always telling me to do better. This is why I am thankful to Mana for employing my mother, I am thankful for being awarded this scholarship and I am thankful for having such awesome parents who believe in me. Not everyone has both their parents and I am lucky to have them cheering me on, in my path to success.”
- Edwin Quintuna, son of Maria Pina (current employee)

“The PIP Mouyiaris Scholarship provided my brother & I with needed funds during my time as a graduate student and his as an undergrad. We are grateful for the program, as it did take some financial burden off my parents. Additionally, such as in this case, scholarships teach philanthropy-- at some point in our future careers, we would like to give back to others as this program has done for me and continue to do for my brother. In several months I will begin residency as a doctor; my brother will be completing his degree in accounting next year. We thank Mr. Nikos Mouyiaris for his generosity.”

“The PIP Mouyiaris Scholarship is an amazing legacy of a great man. Founder and CEO Nikos created an excellent way to commemorate the life of his dear brother. The PIP Mouyiaris scholarship allows me and a lot of grateful Mana employee families to finance school. In doing so, we are able to gain knowledge, gain real world experiences, and become contributing citizens in society. Much like PIP, the scholarship enables us to be people who leave this world a better place than they left it. Thank you PIP and Mana Products for leaving a lasting impression on my life.”

“This scholarship has opened up my doors to wonderful opportunities that have been taken advantage of. I am currently the CEO of a subdivision of a non-profit designed to spreading activism around the world, I am a member of the Florida International University College Democrats, and soon I will become the president a founder of a great Fraternity. Along with all these accomplishments, I am soon to start working in the Florida State Senate for a candidate for state senate. This has all been accomplished in the small time window of a month. This testifies to my will to thrive and my want for success. Thanks to the MANA scholarship I am able to accomplish this and more is stored away for the future. Lastly, I want to thank the company which has allowed my mother to provide my brother and I everything we ever needed in the world. Without MANA my future educational ventures wouldn't have been possible. My mother has been with the company for over a decade and her hard work has reaped its rewards.”
