Manoogian Fellowships

Manoogian Foundation Post-doctoral Fellowships are made possible by a generous gift from the Alex and Marie Manoogian Foundation.

The Armenian Studies Program (ASP) invites junior scholars to apply for the Manoogian Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. The purpose of the Fellowship is to offer research and teaching opportunity to junior scholars in Armenian Studies. Fellows will be asked to participate in the ASP sponsored events, present one public lecture, and teach one undergraduate course in addition to conducting their research. Scholars are required to spend the 2019-20 academic year (September –August) in residence at the University of Michigan.

ASP will award up to two one-year Post-doctoral fellowships for 2019-20 academic year.
