The Armenian Studies Program Endowment

The Armenian Studies Program (ASP) offers graduate student, post-doctoral, pre-doctoral, and visiting scholar fellowships; graduate and undergraduate student research support; specialized symposia, workshops, and conferences; and public lectures and outreach programs. ASP is built on the solid foundation of courses offered by the two endowed chairs in Armenian studies, the Alex Manoogian Chair in Modern Armenian History and the Marie Manoogian Chair in Armenian Language and Literature. ASP promotes the study of the history, language, and culture of Armenia and Armenians and helps prepare a new generation of scholars in the field. We seek to increase the depth and breadth of resources devoted to Armenian studies at U-M through an endowed fund that provides permanent support for the program.
