2015 AYF Youth Corps Legacy Fellowship
The AYF Youth Corps “Sosé & Allen’s Legacy Fellowship” was established in loving memory of Armenian Youth Federation (AYF) alumni Sosé Thomassian & Allen Yekikian. The dedicated couple volunteered for years to develop and expand the Youth Corps program. They shared a strong belief in its mission – strengthening the ties between the Diaspora and Armenia by promoting meaningful participation of Diasporan youth in the nation-building process in Armenia and Artsakh.
Up to four (4) $500.00 grants will be awarded annually to individuals participating in the AYF Youth Corps summer program. The goal of this fellowship is to ease the financial burden of volunteering in Armenia in order to allow more young women and men from the Diaspora an opportunity to experience Armenia first-hand and to contribute their skills and abilities to the betterment of our homeland.
All AYF Youth Corps applicants are eligible and encouraged to apply to the “Sosé & Allen Legacy Fellowship”. Acceptance into the AYF Youth Corps’ program is a prerequisite for all grant recipients. AYF Youth Corps applications are available online here.
Completed Fellowship applications must be submitted by May 1, 2015.
