AIWA Affiliate Initiatives

Laurel Karabian Arts Fund

The Laurel Karabian Fund for the Arts was established in 2017 by the Los Angeles affiliate of the Armenian International Women’s Association of America to honor the memory of Laurel Karabian, the very first president of our Los Angeles Chapter and a staunch supporter of the arts. It is earmarked to support cutting-edge, high-quality young and emerging female talents that reflect the creative aspirations of the Armenian-American community.

Hasmik Mgrdichian Scholarships

Every year the Los Angeles affiliate awards five young women each with a $5000 scholarship which is sent directly to their university.
