Review Process

After the application deadline, the Galvanizing Diaspora program staff will meticulously review all submitted applications. From those, 20 applications that meet the established and announced eligibility and other criteria will be carefully selected.

Over the span of several months, the chosen 20 applicants will have the invaluable opportunity to collaborate closely with ten accomplished and dedicated Armenians who will serve as mentors, advisors, and experts. Each mentor will work with two initiatives, assisting them in refining their proposals and developing compelling 2-minute pitching videos.

As the culmination of this transformative process, a distinguished five judges will convene to witness the presentations of the selected 20 applicants. The judges will then undertake the momentous task of recommending to the Board of ARMENIA 2041 the ten most outstanding initiatives. After the Board’s final decision each winner will be awarded a grant of $10,000 to bring their visionary ideas to life.
