Lithuanian Foundation Scholarship Program for students of Lithuanian heritage


The Lithuanian Foundation is an émigré organization. As such, priorities are given to students studying outside the borders of Lithuania.

The applications for the 2018-2019 academic year will be accepted August 1 – October 1, 2018.

Lithuanian Foundation supports only full-time students of Lithuanian heritage, pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees based on the following priorities:

  1. US citizens and US permanent residents (“green card” holders) pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees.
  2. Students from Lithuania pursuing Master’s, or Doctoral degree in Lithuania;
  3. Students from Lithuania, pursuing Master’s, or Doctoral degree in the US (with a student visa) or elsewhere abroad;
  4. By exception only, students from Lithuania seeking a Bachelor’s degree in Lithuania meeting donor directed fund designations.

Special attention is given to the applications from students, studying or doing research in Lithuanian linguistics, literature, and folklore or Lithuanian history.

The Lithuanian Foundation grants scholarships (up to $5,000) for one academic year at a time. Applicants will need to submit applications each academic year in their degree program.

The Foundation concentrates its resources on those students who have demonstrated an involvement and volunteerism in the Lithuanian community or in the community at large. As such, the Lithuanian Foundation strives to ensure the continuity of the Lithuanian culture and traditions by contributing to the development of future leaders in the Lithuanian community.
