WATERTOWN, Mass.—The Board of Regional Directors of the Armenian Relief Society (ARS) of Eastern USA, Inc. has announced the recipients of its ARS Lazarian Graduate and Undergraduate Scholarships for the academic year 2020-2021. We wish you all a successful and safe academic year.
The scholarships are based on merit, financial need and involvement in the Armenian community. Recipients must be of Armenian descent and enrolled in a four-year college or university in the US.
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.
The ARS, founded in 1910, 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 1,100 members in 31 chapters, located throughout the states east of the Mississippi River.
The 2021 scholarship application deadline is April 1st.
