On September 25, The Law Offices of Hovanes Margarian has announced the 2013 Margarian Scholarship. The purpose of this scholarship is to reward a select number of deserving individuals of Armenian descent for their academic and personal achievements. The application is simple and broadly designed to give you the opportunity to present the reasons as to why you are one of those deserving individuals. In addition to academic accomplishments, the scholarship committee is seeking candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to their heritage, community and society. Persistence, dedication, idealism, perseverance, success and humility are just some of the characteristics which Mr. Margarian had in mind when designing this scholarship. Note that they are seeking the most deserving candidate based on a multitude of factors. 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 be awarded in the following minimum sums: one $2,500 award, one $1,000 award and three $500 awards.
Mr. Margarian’s legal practice focuses almost exclusively in the arena of automobile dealership fraud, automobile defects/lemon law, and consumer class actions.He prides himself in having helped hundreds of consumers and having recovered millions of dollars on their behalf. But like many, he too come from a humble beginning. At the age of thirteen he spoke poor English and failed his first pop-quiz because he did not understand what he was being asked. Since then, he earned his way through education – graduating valedictorian, attending USC on a full scholarship, conducting gene therapy research, publishing in scholarly journals, attending USC law school, running multiple student, charitable and professional associations, founding several business ventures and building a legal career and reputation that is an embodiment of his past. And so it is with all those experiences in mind that he now chose to start what he hopes to become an annual scholarship fund to help those taking the same path. Not necessarily the path to becoming an attorney, but the path to bettering themselves with a clear vision for their future, while staying true to their past. Mr. Margarian welcomes your application and is truly excited to reward the right candidates who demonstrate their deserving of this award.
