The Los Angeles Affiliate of the Armenian International Women’s Association (AIWA) announced this week that it has established a scholarship endowment fund at Glendale Community College.
“Our contribution can make a real difference to a deserving student by paying for tuition, books, fees or other school expenses,” AIWA President Diane Cabraloff said, noting that 40 percent of students rely on some type of financial aid and more than 75 percent have jobs, with more than half working 30-40 hours a week.
While the college’s Scholarship Office administers all scholarship files and accounts, as well as coordinating the selection and award processes, AIWA Board members as sponsors are involved in the selection of recipients. All Glendale Community College students who have completed at least 12 units of credit and are in good academic standing are eligible to apply for scholarships.
In addition to establishing the scholarship endowment fund, AIWA awarded scholarships to two promising students attending Glendale Community College: The recipients were Naira Davtyan seeking a career in Dental Hygiene and Margarita Tsagoyan pursuing a career in Accounting.
AIWA was established and incorporated as a non-profit, non-political, non-sectarian organization in March 1991 with a specific goal to unite Armenian women worldwide and to address the critical issues facing them everywhere.
