AEF TUFENKIAN SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION IN USA FOR 2017-2018 ACADEMIC YEAR

All completed scholarship application packages must be received no later than July 31, 2017.

The Armenian Educational Foundation has offered a helping hand to hundreds of students in more than a dozen nations throughout the world. This assistance has been made possible in large part thanks to the various scholarship funds which are administered free of overhead costs.

AEF was established in 1950 to achieve the following objectives:

  • To render financial assistance to Armenian educational institutions, irrespective of their religious affiliation or denomination.
  • To assist students of Armenian parentage (whether father or mother or both), to acquire an education in educational institutions.
  • To establish and to aid in the establishment of Armenian educational institutions and cultural centers.
  • To establish and to aid in the establishment of Armenian courses of study and research programs.

The first fund was established in 1962 with $50,000 form Abraham Karapetian. In 1963, another was created when three individuals, Aghavni Guleserian, Lilian Movel and Oscar Caprielian, contributed a sum of $75,000.

After losing a bit of momentum, interest in scholarship funds has been on the rise in recent years. For example, in 1990, Ralph and Savey Tufenkian, in loving memory of their son, established the Richard Tufenkian Memorial Scholarship Fund in the amount of $215,000. The Tufenkian family requested that each year outstanding college and university students in California be awarded grants in recognition of their superior academic records.

In 1993, another fund was established by George Jorjorian in loving memory his parents Bagdasar and Vehanoosh Jorjorian. Mr. Jorjorian specifically requested that the money, $85,000, go to students in Anjar, Lebanon who are pursuing higher education in that country or in Armenia.

Today, a greater number of Armenian students are seeking to extend their level of education beyond high school and even college. With the formation of more scholarship funds, the AEF can provide additional support to a larger number of these students in colleges and universities in the United States, award those pursuing Armenian studies, establish funds which would focus on specific fields and give financial assistance for academic research. In this way, the AEF hopes that it will help young people make lasting contributions to their respective communities.
