Armenian Studies Scholarship 2021

For graduate students of any nationality

Keeping with its mission to support research in the field of Armenian Studies, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation invites applications from graduate students pursuing research in this field.

Given the recent political and military developments in Nagorno-Karabakh/Artsakh and Armenia, the lack of academic research/analysis on related contemporary subjects, and the Foundation’s stated policy of privileging research on current issues, the scholarship programme for Armenian Studies in 2021 will focus on contemporary (post-Soviet) topics from social science perspectives, with particular attention to the following disciplines:

  • 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.

Please consult the conditions document before applying.


Who is eligible?

Students admitted or already pursuing a Master, PhD degree or Post Doc in an institution of higher education anywhere in the world.
