Well it feels good to be back and blogging, especially after the fact that our little en devour was noted in the AGBU Magazine.
Although there are some interesting things happening around the world today, I will not talk about them. As the title of this thread is pretty much self explanatory, you probably already guessed what I am going to talk about today; yes ladies and gents it's our very own Scholarship Fund .
The idea was brought up in one of our chapter meetings by our fellow brother Edgar K., and we all liked it; in fact we liked it so much that we decided to offer a scholarship to our studious and socially aware Armenian males who are graduating from high school this year. Of course to make sure that the awarded amount goes towards purchasing books and university units and not rims and cigarettes the student has to show not only a proof of his acceptance to one of the six eligible universities, but also a proof of attendance. Only after that he will get the scholarship award ($500).
Since this is the first time that our organization is doing such a thing, we decided to keep the award amount relatively small. If it turns out to be a "great success" (I had to quote Borat somewhere), we will do this again next year and most probably offer a higher award.
So if you or anybody else that you know, are an Armenian male, graduating from a high school, with an 100% intent of studying in either CSUN, UCLA, Cal State LA, UC Irvine, Cal Poly Pomona, or UC San Diego, please do not hesitate for a second and grab the application form from AEOSF.ALPHAEPSILONOMEGA.ORG, complete it by following the instructions, and send it to the address provided in the application by March 13, 2007.
