Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fellowship

Dolores Zohrab Liebmann was the daughter of a prominent Armenian intellectual, writer and statesman and was married to one of the owners of a successful American business.  She supported students and educational and charitable organizations during her lifetime.  Mrs. Liebmann’s primary concern was to attract and support students with outstanding character and ability who hold promise for achievement and distinction in their chosen fields of study.

Mrs. Liebmann’s will created a perpetual charitable trust designated as “The Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fund” for the purpose of funding advanced education and graduate study grants, which must be carried out entirely in the United States of America.  The Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fellowships are to be awarded only to candidates who have outstanding undergraduate records, have demonstrated a need for financial assistance, are citizens of the United States of America, are enrolled in accredited colleges and universities in the United States and have received baccalaureate degrees. The amount of each Fellowship will cover the cost of tuition and a stipend to be allocated towards room, board, living expenses and income taxes.

The program of study need not be limited to Armenian studies, and candidates can be of any national descent. Applications must be submitted through the office of the Associate Provost for Graduate Affairs.
