LOS ANGELES—The Armenian Bar Association recently announced that it is accepting applications for its Fourth Annual Scholarship Program. The program is designed to support meritorious students of Armenian descent attending, or accepted for admission to, an approved law school in the United States, Armenia, or elsewhere. Recipients must demonstrate an outstanding academic record as well as a strong commitment to the Armenian community, particularly in humanitarian or law-related endeavors. It is primarily funded by donations and fundraising events hosted by the Armenian Bar Association. In addition to the program, the Armenian Bar Association supports Armenian law students through its varied programs and events including the mentorship and internship programs and presentations by legal scholars.
“Last year, we awarded two scholarships under the Scholarship Program, and we are very glad that we can continue to support Armenian students studying law. The Armenian Bar Association is committed to helping students who have shown superior academic achievement and who contribute to the Armenian communities in which they live,” said Christine Engustian, chair of the Armenian Bar Association’s Grants Committee. Nicole Sahagen and Nana Chibukhchian are also on the Grants Committee.
