WATERTOWN, Mass. —The Armenian Relief Society (ARS) of Eastern USA has announced the recipients of this year’s ARS Undergraduate Scholarship and ARS George and Beatrice Lazarian Graduate Scholarship.

Forty six graduate and undergraduate students were granted scholarships totaling $48,500. Students represented 41 universities and colleges from nine US States (California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia), the Washington DC, and Canada. The awardees prevailed in a highly competitive application process that evaluated their academic achievements, their involvement in the Armenian community and their financial needs.

“We are pleased to award these scholarships to Armenian scholars across the United States,” said Annie Attar, Chairperson of the ARS of Eastern USA. “We are paying it forward so that one day these students turn into professionals and give their skills, talents and knowledge back to their communities and homeland,” she continued.
