United States
Full Year
2 or More Years


Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fund Fellowships provide funding for graduate study in any recognized field of study in the humanities, social sciences, or natural sciences (including law, medicine, engineering, architecture, or other formal professional training) or for independent research or study projects.  While the Liebmann Fund encourages Armenian Studies, a candidate's program of study need not be limited to this field, and candidates can be of any national descent.

Fellowships cover the cost of tuition and provide an annual $18,000 stipend for living expenses.

Fellowships are restricted to graduate students who are U.S. citizens attending an accredited and designated institution of higher education within the U.S.  Applications must be submitted through the dean of the university where the student is pursuing graduate studies.  In undergraduate liberal arts colleges, students in their senior year are eligible to apply for a fellowship to fund their future graduate work.  Candidates must have an outstanding undergraduate record, demonstrate financial need, and be attending a designated college or university for graduate study.

NOTE:  Students intending graduate study at Columbia University must adhere to procedures and deadlines set by the University's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, which must formally nominate students for approval.
