Scholarships Available for High School Seniors
BOSTON — The Armenian Women’s Educational Club is announcing four $1,000 scholarships and is now accepting applications from boys and girls of Armenian descent graduating from high school and entering a four-year college in the fall of 2015.
Applicants may be male or female, must be of Armenian descent and be accepted at a four-year college or university for the current year. They must be seniors at a greater Boston high school who are United States citizens or hold a resident alien card. Winners of the $1000 scholarships will be selected on the basis of their academic record and financial need.
Students may request scholarship application forms by calling Araxie Manjikian at 781-937-0515. Applications are due by April 30, and the scholarships will be awarded in June.
The Armenian Women’s Educational Club was founded some 75 years ago for the purpose of providing scholarships to college students, first in the Middle East and for the past 30 years in the United States. Started by a group of Armenian immigrant women, who wanted to support education, the Club has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to young people of Armenian heritage.
