ARS of Eastern USA Awards 46 Students with Scholarships

WATERTOWN, MA. – On July 7, 2021, the Armenian Relief Society (ARS) of Eastern USA announced that it is providing 46 graduate and undergraduate students with scholarships totalling $48,500 hailing from 41 universities and colleges from 9 US States (California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia), the Nation’s Capital, Washington DC, and Canada. The applicants prevailed in a highly competitive application process that looked at the student’s academic achievements, involvement in the Armenian community, and financial need. 

“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. 

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. Similarly, the ARS George and Beatrice Lazarian Graduate Scholarship Fund established by the Lazarian couple to award scholarships to those pursuing their graduate education.
