Please note: For the 2012-13 competition, departments ARE NOT required to submit their nominations to the university first.
The Will of Dolores Zohrab Liebmann created a perpetual charitable trust designated as "The Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fund" for the purpose of funding advanced education and graduate study grants, which must be carried out entirely in the United States of America. The Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Fellowships are to be awarded only to candidates who have outstanding undergraduate records, have demonstrated a need for financial assistance, are citizens of the United States of America, are enrolled in accredited colleges and universities in the United States, and have received baccalaureate degrees.
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 and a stipend to be allocated towards room, board, living expenses, and income taxes. The Trustee has set the stipend at $18,000 for this year. The procedures governing the granting of the awards are detailed on the enclosed application.
