The following information was provided by the Arisdine Krikorian Family Foundation:

Trustees of the Arisdine Krikorian Family Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization,
launched its first annual scholarship program. The Foundation was created by Rose and
Sybil Krikorian, who grew up in Watertown and later moved to Belmont where they lived for
many years.

They were the daughters of Arisdine and Panos Krikorian, who were born and raised in Armenia. The last survivor of the Krikorian family, Rose, died in August 2021 at the age of 96. The Krikorian sisters had successful careers working for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Sybil was an administrative assistant in the governor’s office. Rose was the executive assistant to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts.

The Krikorian family was deeply proud of their Armenian heritage and devoted to many
Armenian organizations. They were keenly interested in the educational advancement of Armenian children. This interest led them to create the Foundation in their name.

The Foundation will provide scholarships of up to $2,500 to 20 undergraduate and graduate students of Armenian descent attending colleges and universities in the Greater Boston area during the winter term of the 2022-2023 academic year . The program is administered by Scholarship of America, Inc. Trustees of the Foundation are Thomas F. Maffei, a Boston attorney, Professor Renee Landers of Suffolk Law School, and Professor Beth Hennessey, recently retired from Wellesley College.
