The Taylor-based Manoogian Simone Foundation announced Wednesday the gift of $1.2 million to the Armenian Studies Program at the University of Michigan to advance the study of Armenian history and culture.

The gift will fund graduate and post-doctoral fellowships, visiting scholar programs, graduate workshops and expand the Summer Language Institute in Ann Arbor.

“This gift will expand the program by providing funds for young scholars to study Armenian language and history, both in Michigan and Armenia,” foundation president, Louise Manoogian Simone, said in a statement.

The gift is part of UM’s $2.5 billion fundraising campaign, the Michigan Difference.
