Top 50 Armenian Scholarships

Every year, thousands of Armenian students are admitted into college, a privilege that comes at a cost to them and their families. As they prepare for what will be a formative part of their lives, many are confronted with soaring tuition costs and the prospect of debt upon graduation. Here, at WORLDSCHOLARSHIPFORUM believe in education and its power to transform individuals and nations. That’s why we COMPILED an annual list of Armenian scholarships for current and prospective college students that we hope will help to allay the cost of getting an education.

We have crawled the Internet to find every scholarship available to Armenian students that there is (if we missed any, scroll down and let us know!). We’ve included as much information about each scholarship as possible to help you decide which ones are right for you. If the deadline for a scholarship has passed, don’t worry: all of the listed scholarships are recurring and will be available again next year.

Here are over 50 scholarships totaling more than $1 million in funding for students pursing anything from an undergraduate to a doctorate degree. Good luck!
