Each year Fresno State, through its Armenian Studies Program, awards more than $70,000 in scholarships and grants from endowments given to the University to aid students interested in Armenia and the Armenians. Awards range from $1,000 to $2,000. These scholarships are for anyone taking Armenian Studies Program courses and not only for students of "Armenian" heritage. Students pursuing a minor in Armenian Studies are usually guaranteed a scholarship. Additionally, each year there are several Research Grants awarded by the Armenian Studies Program to students with a high GPA interested in carrying out research in Armenian history, art, or literature under the direction of a faculty member.

Students working toward a minor or simply enrolling in Armenian courses are eligible for scholarships administered by the program.
