The Armenian World, only a budding concept a decade ago, is today an increasingly tangible reality. As we continue to build and strengthen the intellectual infrastructure of our global nation, embracing and enhancing the minds and might of young Armenians around the world remains a high cause.
Driven by this imperative, Huys Foundation was launched in 2018 as a U.S.-based independent, non-partisan, non-profit organization that pursues a single mission: supporting Armenian youth achieve educational excellence, with an academic and professional commitment to Armenia and the Armenian World.
Designed and powered by the voluntary efforts of Luys Students and Alumni, Huys Foundation seeks to achieve its mission through scholarship fundraising and building global networks of academic and professional potential. In so doing, the Foundation remains committed to the principles of accountability, transparency, and independence, dedicating virtually all funds raised to the cause of education.
Over its year-long existence, Huys has succeeded in granting scholarships to six bright Armenian minds for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 academic years, supporting their studies in cancer research, interactive communications, economic research, engineering, physiological sciences, and veterinary medicine at leading institutions around the world, including New York University, University of California, Los Angeles, University of Cambridge, King’s College London, and University of Oxford.
Huys Foundation builds upon the decade-long accomplishments of Luys Foundation, acknowledging the immense efforts of its two founders, Mr. Serj Sargsyan and Mr. Tigran Sargsyan, and of its staff, sponsors, and supporters in bringing life-changing opportunities to a worldwide network of Luys Scholars. In so doing, Huys Foundation puts the principle of “Paying It Forward” in action: powered by their dedication to the cause and with funds raised largely from the donations of this community, Luys Scholars seek to open the doors of opportunity for the coming generations as were once opened wide for themselves.
Throughout our history, Armenians have persevered and prospered by virtue of their knowledge and wisdom. For this reason, the Huys Foundation espouses educational excellence as the path forward, striving to serve and guide the Armenian World, through Education, to Eternity.
