For almost a century, the AGBU SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM has championed the higher education of tens of thousands of promising young Armenian university students enrolled at some of the world’s top-ranked universities. Annually, we award over $1 million USD to young adults pursuing their undergraduate and graduate degrees in nearly 40 countries across 6 continents. With that financial assistance, students with great potential but limited resources are able to engage in specialized fields of education, such as law, medicine, the performing arts and religious studies, and later establish successful careers. The AGBU SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM is made possible by the many benefactors and donors who have established endowments since the 1920’s, or have contributed over the years. Because of their generosity, we are able to provide students with the support they need to succeed at each stage of their education. Today, through added focus on specialized fields of study, the AGBU SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM offers financial assistance to a broader range of Armenian students across the globe.
