Scholarships and Awards

Victor Hambartsumyan Award

In March of 1994, the Armenian Engineers and Scientists of America (AESA) Research and Education Committee established an award to recognize Armenian engineers and scientists worldwide for their technical excellence. The award was named after the renowned scientist Victor Harmbatsumyan who was the first recipient in a ceremony held in Armenia. This act thrusted AESA into immortalizing one of the most prestigious and most recognized scientists of Armenian descent in the world.  Since the inception of the award it is customary to bestow this award every year to an Armenian scientist/engineer who has high accomplishments and recognition and is an exemplary scientist/engineer to all peers. 

Award Process
  • The Awards Committee receives solicited names from AESA members worldwide.
  • This committee reviews the accomplishments of the suggested scientist/engineer and recommends a finalist.
  • The award is presented during an AESA gala, award ceremony, mixer, or other festivities and every attempt is made for the recipient of the award to be present in person.

AESA Graduate School Scholarships

AESA remains committed to engaging Armenian youth in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields and providing opportunities for career and educational advancement. However, our Graduate School Scholarship program is being placed on hold.

The $3,000 scholarship, which was previously offered annually to Armenian graduate students involved in a thesis/dissertation program at an accredited university, will not be available this year. We hope to reinstate this program when sufficient funding from donors, sponsors, and stakeholders becomes available again.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please continue to watch our website and communications for updates on when the Graduate School Scholarship program will reopen for applications. Thank you for your understanding.”
