The Armenian Communities Department of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation university scholarship programme focuses on four principal categories, putting further emphasis on Armenian Studies internationally. The four categories are:
In addition, the Department supports Armenian university students studying in Portugal, and provides emergency or special circumstances scholarships to students facing extraordinary situations. These applications are considered on an ad hoc basis.
In order to help applicants plan better their financial resources, and enhance transparency further, the Department established fixed grant amounts for three of its major scholarship categories (see “Requirements, Criteria and Conditions” document of the different scholarship categories for more information).
This year the Armenian Communities Department also launched an exceptional needs-based scholarship category for students hit the hardest by the Lebanon crisis, so that they can continue (or complete) their studies during the current academic year:
Emergency Scholarship for Armenian University Students in Lebanon. (APPLICATIONS CLOSED)
The Armenian Communities Department supports various cultural, educational, research and philanthropic projects that can have a positive impact on the Armenian world, be it in Armenia or in the Diaspora. Project grants are open to all applicants (both individuals and organisations), regardless of nationality or country of implementation, as long as they pertain to Armenian themes and issues.
Projects submitted must, however, fall within the scope of the Department’s priority areas:
The Western Armenian Language.
Cultural Creativity Support in Armenian.
Research and Critical Engagement in Armenia.
Applications must be submitted online. Before completing the online form, make sure to read the “Requirements, Criteria and Conditions” and “Application Guidelines” documents. Project applications are evaluated four times a year in April, July, October 2023 and January 2024.
The deadlines for applications for each of the four cycles are: 31 March, 30 June, 30 September, and 16 December.
The results are communicated a month after the deadline of each cycle, in April, July, October, and in January of the following year.
The aim of this grant program is to give creative minds the chance to develop contemporary cultural initiatives conceived and implemented in the Western Armenian language. The program will accept submissions from individuals, small groups, as well as not-for-profit organizations and institutions. All interested parties above the age of 18 are welcome to apply.
Creative expressions of ideas, experiences and emotions in a wide range of media, including the arts, interdisciplinary and hybrid forms of expression, new music, literature, critical essays and graphic novels, videos, installations, animation, creative broadcasting and any other form of cultural expression in Western Armenian are encouraged.
