The Armenian Communities department of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation encourages students of Armenian origin from less developed countries (e.g. Lebanon and other countries in the Middle East) to obtain higher education degrees in any field at a recognized university in their own country of residence or in Armenia.
The scholarships are open to all disciplines, and are awarded based on merit only. Students must be studying in their own country of residence; students wishing to study in Armenia will also be considered. This scholarship category focuses principally on undergraduate students, but graduate students will also be considered.
Up to thirty-five new scholarships will be provided per year for a maximum of three years. Each scholarship will be for a fixed sum of 2500 USD. Degrees in the social sciences will be privileged in 2021.
Candidates wishing to apply for a Calouste Gulbenkian Higher Education Scholarship must meet the following requirements:
- Be of Armenian origin
- Be no more than 25 years old at the time of the application
- Have outstanding examination and/or school results
- Be enrolled or accepted in a higher education institution, duly recognized by the local national authorities, in their own country of residence or at a university in Armenia.
- Candidates must declare to the Foundation if they receive other scholarships to obtain their degrees.
