Supporting educational opportunities for individuals of Armenian ethnicity
Tavitian Scholar Program at the Fletcher School
The core of this work involves a collaboration between the Tavitian Foundation and Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, Boston. Each year, up to thirty Armenian government professionals are selected by the Foundation from a highly-competitive applicant pool. These Tavitian Scholars travel from Armenia to Boston to participate in a six-month program of professional development and multi-disciplinary graduate-level education at the Fletcher School.
Today, alumni are employed at the Central Bank of Armenia, President’s Office, Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Finance, Parliament and Government of Armenia, to name a few.
The impact of the program was formally recognized by the Government of Armenia in 2011 when the Prime Minister of Armenia presented Mr. Tavitian with the Movses Khorenatsi medal, recognizing the Foundation’s important contributions to Armenia.
