The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation is awarding short term scholarships to enable qualified students, early-career academics and researchers based in Armenia to participate in international conferences, seminars, short term courses and research trips, related to their research field, abroad. The objective of the programme is to encourage academic interaction and exchange of knowledge and ideas.

Scholarships are awarded mostly for short term travels. In rare cases, longer research/study trips will be considered, for up to three months. The programme is open to all research fields. This year we will continue to privilege applications from the humanities and the social sciences but will also privilege research related to environmental sustainability and climate change.

Applications are welcomed at any time of the year, no sooner than six months and no later than two month, before forthcoming events.

Submitted applications will be evaluated regularly on a monthly basis. The average time to provide candidates with a response is one month.
