Application Form (English)

Due to overwhelming number of applications, the Foundation has now set limits of the number of applications it will review from each university so it is in your best interest to get applications in early . If you submit your application after the limit has been reached for your university, the Foundation committee will not even review your application for consideration.

We prefer you use the English version of the application, but if you are unable to respond in English, you may use the Armenian application.

Application forms are only  available through our website.
Notwithstanding the criteria set forth for award of scholarships in these guidelines, the Board of the Foundation may consider as it deems appropriate any special circumstances, such as a personal hardship or particular need of the applicant or certain demonstrated history of service to those in need in the mid-Atlantic area of the USA or within the Armenian community by the applicant or applicant’s family and may waive certain criteria when making a scholarship award for educational purposes.
