Other Scholarship Opportunities for Armenian Students
AGBU offers scholarships for US-based study through its US Graduate Scholarship program; however, only graduate students (masters level and above) are eligible to apply. Undergraduate scholarship opportunities within the United States are only available to those pursuing performing arts through the AGBU Performing Arts Scholarship.
The information below is intended to provide additional resources to undergraduate and some graduate students pursuing study within the United States. Limited scholarship opportunities are listed for study outside the US.
Please note, since these listings are not maintained by AGBU, we cannot attest to their validity. Students are encouraged to review them carefully and contact those of interest to make sure the financial aid opportunities/organizations are still in existence, and/or the criteria and deadline information are up to date.
Some scholarships have specific guidelines and criteria that may not be applicable to all students. Most scholarship application deadlines fall within the months of March, April, and May. Please be sure to carefully review the websites and applications to check that they have been updated for the current academic year.
