Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fellowship

Deadline: December 15, 2023
Fri, 15 December, 2023 12:00am

The Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fund was established by the Will of Dolores Zohrab Liebmann and is administered by JPMorgan, Trustee. Mrs. 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, as expressed in her Will, was to attract and support students with outstanding character and ability who hold promise for achievement and distinction in their chosen fields of study. The trustees welcome applications from students of all national origins who are United States citizens.

The amount of each Fellowship will cover the cost of tuition only (no fees) and a $18,000 stipend to be allocated towards room, board, living expenses and income taxes.
