HOLLYWOOD—Armenian National Committee of American – Hollywood (ANCA-Hollywood) is hosting a financial aid seminar on Saturday, March 23, 2013 at 10:30am. The seminar will take place at the Armenian Youth Center located at 1559 N. Kenmore Street in Hollywood, California. The event is the first in a series of forums for its Path to College program.
This seminar is meant to help high school juniors and seniors navigate the vast array of financial aid options and opportunities available, from grants, to scholarships, to loans. The speakers, including Assistant Director of Financial Aid at USC Andrea Zuniga, will discuss how the system works, what your options are, and how to maximize the aid you can receive.
College is an important component for the Armenian community in Los Angeles. “The cost of attending institutions of higher education is continuously on the rise,” says ANCA-Hollywood Board Member, Varty Defterderian, “and it is vital that every individual have the opportunity to go to college and not be left behind due to the cost of attendance.”
Despite the daunting price tags, college can be affordable. ANCA-Hollywood’s Financial Aid Seminar will show you how. Many students can qualify for thousands of dollars in student aid; and some may even get anywhere from half to all of their tuition covered without any loans.
ANCA-Hollywood encourages all the students and their parents to attend and participate. Attendees will be provided with light refreshments.
ANCA-Hollywood advances the social, economic, cultural, and political rights of the area’s Armenian American community and promotes increased Armenian American civic participation at the grassroots and public policy levels.
