Armenia is home to more than 100 universities and academic institutions. Those centers of academic excellence, though mainly inherited from the Soviet Union, preserve and accumulate a huge academic power and internationally recognized educational potential. There are many international fellowships and scholarships available for international citizens to travel to Armenia as a student or a researcher. Hundreds of conferences and summer schools are also organized in Armenia, thus becoming an excellent medium for international scholars and scientists to visit Armenia for a shorter period and meet their Armenian colleagues. ARMACAD provides a huge database about scholarships and fellowships to study and research in Armenia as well as a huge collection of summer schools and conferences being organized in Armenia.
