As per its constitution, approved by the Charity Commission, the Yesai and Maria Mazmanian Foundation (YMMF) provides scholarships to students of Greek Cypriot background and of Armenian heritage.

While we hope to include students of additional backgrounds in the future, our limited funds given our status as a new charity means that we need to initially start with this limited scope.

YMMF provides Scholarships from a select list of eight Universities. These are:

1.      University of Oxford

2.     University of Cambridge

3.     Imperial College London

4.    University College London

5.    London School of Economics

6.    University of Warwick

7.     King’s College London

8.    London Business School

The Foundation Trustees retain the right to provide scholarships to students accepted at other UK or International Universities as they deem appropriate.

YMMF Program

The YMMF Scholarships are usually a commitment to 3-4 exceptional students every year of at least £1,000 per year. The recipients are also invited to join the prestigious YMMF Program. The Foundation evaluates each recipient every year before renewing their scholarship although it retains the right to not do so.

During the 2022-2023 academic year four scholarships were provided.
