To provide support to Armenian and Armenian Studies university students and researchers and to promote, more generally, research on Armenian subjects, notably on contemporary issues.


Providing university scholarships to Armenian students around the world has been a core activity of the Department since its inception in 1956. We continue with these scholarships, but instead of giving hundreds of small grants that constitute a small part of a student’s overall budget, we give fewer scholarships but in greater amounts, particularly at the post-graduate level. Our emphasis is on Armenian Studies, broadly defined.

The scholarship programme is divided into the following categories:

  • Armenian Studies Scholarships.
  • Higher Education Scholarships for Armenian Students in Developing Countries.
  • Short Term Grants for Armenian Studies.
  • Short Term Conference and Travel Grants to Students and Young Academics in Armenia.
