Diocesan Scholarships

Each year the Diocese awards scholarships to several promising youth throughout the Diocese.

The Diocese seeks students who are active in their local parishes and have assumed leadership roles in their communities. To be eligible, applicants must be U.S. citizens enrolled in four-year undergraduate programs.

All applications must be accompanied by a recommendation from the parish priest. For those parishes with no parish priest, the recommendation must come from the Parish Council Chairperson.

The scholarship funding comes from various endowment funds, including the Adrina Movsesian Scholarship, the Armine Dikijian Journalism Scholarship, the Mabel Fenner Scholarship, and the George Holopigian Memorial Fund.
