GALAS Academic Scholarships

GALAS’ academic scholarships have served as a critical resource for the LGBTQ+ Armenian community. We offer two scholarships: the GALAS Academic Scholarship and the Nyrie Sevan Gharibian Scholarship.

GALAS Academic Scholarship - $1,000 USD

This scholarship is for undergraduate or graduate students of Armenian descent who have demonstrated LGBTQ+ activism.

Nyrie Sevan Gharibian Scholarship - $1,000 USD

This scholarship is in memory of late artist, activist, and GALAS community member Nyrie S. Gharibian. Preference will be given to undergraduate and graduate-level college students of Armenian descent in the fields of Arts and Education.

There is one application for both scholarships. All applicants will be automatically considered for both scholarships.
