NEW YORK — The New York Community Trust in conjunction with its H. Tabakoglu Scholarship Fund is currently accepting scholarship applications for the Adrina C. Kayaian Graduate Scholarship Award Program.  The deadline to apply is May 2.

To be considered for grants up to $5,000 per academic year, the candidate must be of Armenian descent and possess the appropriate credentials from any accredited school or university in food, culinary arts or nutritional services.  The candidate must demonstrate that the courses he or she is studying are appropriate and consistent with food science, nutrition, etc., graduate or undergraduate, in the United States or abroad.
