Remembrance in Music Scholarship Fund

We want to ensure that every note of sacred music that is woven in memory of a fallen hero will be cherished and remembered with the blooming bud of a lifetime of education. – Sevag Derderian (Chairman)

We at the AACCWD will never stop to ensure that the memory of our fallen heroes are preserved in the education of our students. Students draw creativity, emotion, and love from such losses and transform their feelings into personal Godly works for the betterment of the Armenian Apostolic Church.

This music scholarship fund will be available to graduating high school students or present collegiate students who are majoring or minoring in a music degree. This scholarship in contrast to our Father Arshag Khatchadourian fund will only be available to those whose lives have been marked with a loss of a loved one while serving in the armed forces.
