Scholarship eligibility criteria
In order to be eligible for a Luys Scholarship, the applicant must:
  • Be Armenian, a citizen of the Republic of Armenia and/or of Armenian descent.
  • Be admitted to a full-time degree-granting academic program (Bachelor, Master, PhD) at one of the Luys recognized universities.
  • Be between the ages of 18 and 40 at the time of application.


Applicants will be asked to provide proof of identity or that he/she is a direct descendent of Armenian immigrants. Please submit documents such as birth certificates or baptism certificates, or naturalization documents that state the country of origin and nationality. A student cannot apply if he/she has only a conditional offer from a university. Students are required to be full-time for the duration of their degree programs. Deferment of a scholarship is not allowed. A student can apply for a Luys Scholarship only after applying to their university's internal students aid office for a scholarship. The financial application has to be updated and presented along with the current year academic program application when submitting the request for a Luys scholarship. Old submissions are not accepted. A student cannot apply to Luys twice for the same level of academic degree. For example, one cannot apply for a second master's degree. You will receive support only for one degree from Luys. To receive additional support for an advanced degree (from an undergrad to master's or master's to PhD), you will be on a waiting list and awarded only if there is availability among the 10 openings per university. Every year, the Luys online Scholarship Application starts on April 1st and closes on July 15th. Late or incomplete applications will be disqualified. The first 10 people applying with a full application showing an unconditional offer from one of the universities listed by Luys for the upcoming academic year will be eligible for a Luys Scholarship.
