ATTN: Please DO NOT CALL the office about the scholarship.
The office staff will not be able to help you. All pertinent information, from dates/deadlines to qualifications, can be found in the downloadable application package.


We are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2020 Margarian Scholarship. The selection process was gratifying yet difficult. We had over 700 brilliant applicants with determined goals and dreams with powerful visions of change and prosperity for themselves, their communities and society at large. Inspired by the applicants’ personal stories we increased the number of scholarships to be a total of seven. We hope our small contribution to their journey will not only assist them financially but more so refill their determination to succeed, become leaders in their professions and one day pass on the same support to someone else. In the coming weeks we will feature details about the winners, their triumphs and goals. 

The 2020 Margarian Scholarship winners are:


Alec Ohanian

Rachel Straub

Arman Vardanyan

David Torres

Mariam Zadoyan

Michelle Garabetian

Maria Esteban


Congratulations to all the winners!


Due to Covid-19 we will not be hosting an awards reception this year. Instead, we will contact all the winners individually. While we were unable to award all of the worthy applicants, we are happy to be a resource for any that may benefit from career advice and guidance (especially in the field of law). 


Thank you to all the applicants and their recommenders for taking the time to apply and make our scholarship program a success. 


Very truly yours,

We are very excited to announce the 2020 Margarian Scholarship. We are proud of all our brilliant scholarship recipients over the past years, who have shown dedication and commitment not only to their education but also to their society and community.

As in past years, the 2020 Margarian Scholarship is aimed at rewarding a select number of deserving students for their academic and personal achievements. Our application is designed to be broad to give you the opportunity to present all the reasons why you are the most deserving candidate. We are seeking students who have demonstrated a commitment to their heritage, community, and society through persistence, dedication, success, and humility. Note, that we do not only determine recipients solely on G.P.A. basis or economic hardship. Rather, we seek the most deserving candidate based on a multitude of factors mentioned. The scholarship will be in the form of a check payable to the recipient and may be applied towards past, present, or future tuition expenses. The scholarship prizes will consist of five (5) awards of $1,000 each.

Like many of the applicants, we have also come from a humble beginning. Thus, it is with all those experiences in mind that we established the annual scholarship fund to help those who are on the same path. Not necessarily the path to becoming an attorney, but the path to bettering themselves with a clear vision for the future. We welcome your application and are truly excited for the opportunity to reward the most deserving candidates.

The application deadline is August 1, 2020.

Winners will be announced on September 1, 2020.

Very truly yours,
Margarian Scholarship Fund
