The Armenian Communities Department of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation is committed to the enhancement of Armenian Studies globally. It awards scholarships to research students admitted to or already pursuing a Master or PhD degree or a Post Doc in internationally recognized universities.Note that “Armenian Studies” is understood in a broad sense and is not confined to “Area Studies”.

To foster better understanding and knowledge about the most recent developments in Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh/Artsakh, as well as the Diaspora, and to build stronger theoretical, empirical and/or applied research, in 2023 the Foundation will privilege in the first instance in this scholarship category research proposals on these topics. This is in line with the Foundation’s declared policy of privileging research on current and contemporary issues (i.e. post-Soviet). Research projects with high policy relevance and practical use will be especially welcomed. The following disciplines are particularly encouraged: political science/international relations, sociology, anthropology, current history, social psychology, international law, human rights, peace and conflict studies, international development and humanitarian studies, diaspora, refugee and migration studies, cultural studies, and other closely related disciplines.

We will support seven to ten Armenian Studies scholarships in 2023. The scholarship amounts for one year are fixed and indicated in the “Requirements, Criteria and Conditions” document.
