Suzie Kebabchyan - The Winner of $4,000 University Scholarship 2016
"I feel so blessed that I won the $4,000 scholarship. After I received the email from Veken Bakrad at InvestMoneySchool.com that there were 771 applicants I was very intimidated and definitely did not expect to win. It was a huge surprise for me and every time I remind myself that I won, I get even more excited. This scholarship was very important for me because it covers my whole tuition for one year at CSUN. This means that I don’t have to worry about not being able to register for classes, which relieves me and my mother from a lot of pressure. If I hadn’t received it I would have had to take some loans to finance my education. I would also have to find a job either on campus or outside of campus which would not allow me to take as many classes as I would like to in order to graduate on time."

Anna Grigorian - The Winner of $1,500 School Scholarship 2014
Hello, my name is Anna Grigorian, and I am currently a junior at Glendale Community College. I want to give many thanks to Veken Bakrad Scholarship for this award; alike many others that plan on pursuing a college career and beyond, I find it challenging to pay for the privilege of receiving a higher education. Since I was very young, I’ve always had a deep fascination with understanding how we think and act, and a passion for wanting to help others potentially compelled me to major in Sociology. Thank you again to InvestMoneySchool.com, and congratulations to the two other recipients as well!
