The Board of Regional Directors of the Armenian Relief Society (ARS) of Eastern USA, Inc. has announced the recipients of the ARS Undergraduate Scholarships and Lazarian Graduate Scholarships for the 2019-2020 school year.
The scholarships are based on merit, financial need, and involvement in the Armenian community. Recipients must be of Armenian descent and must be enrolled in a four year college or university in the United States. This year, the ARS of Eastern USA awarded over $50,000 to 40 students from 14 states.
The ARS Undergraduate Scholarship Fund was established through the generous donations of many benefactors, who provided the financial resources necessary for the ARS to assist Armenian undergraduate students for over three decades.
The ARS George and Beatrice Lazarian Graduate Scholarship Fund has also granted hundreds of generous scholarships to deserving graduate students.
Found in 1910, the ARS is a nonprofit, charitable organization comprised of Armenians who volunteer their time and effort to support the educational and humanitarian needs of the Armenian people throughout the world. The ARS Eastern USA consists of 1,200 members in 32 chapters located throughout the states east of the Mississippi River.
