Emergency Scholarship for Armenian University Students in Lebanon

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.


For undergraduate students, but Master’s students meeting the requirements will also be considered. Preference will be given to undergraduate students in their final year of study.


The severe economic crisis in Lebanon since 2019 has had a detrimental impact on many Armenian university students and their families. To alleviate the financial burden, this exceptional needs-based scholarship was created for students hit the hardest by the crisis, so that they can continue (or complete) their studies during the current academic year.

The scholarship is for the 2022 – 2023 academic year only and is a one-off non-renewable award for students already enrolled in university. Candidates in Lebanon wishing to apply for Higher Education Scholarships for Armenian Students in/from Developing Countries for the next academic year (2023 – 2024) should consult the conditions of these two distinct scholarship categories attentively before applying.

Students already receiving scholarships from Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation for the 2022 – 2023 academic year are not eligible to apply to this category. It is possible to apply to this category for 2022 – 2023 and the merit-based Higher Education Scholarship for 2023 – 2024.
