ABOUT THE CBA
Career at CBA
The Central Bank of Armenia invites the students as well as all of those who are interested in conducting research, to take part in Isahak Isahakyan research competition.
The competition was named in honor of Isahak Isahakyan, the first governor of the Central Bank of Armenia. Till now it has been implemented as a scholarship program engaging students from universities of Armenia and Artsakh. Since 2023 the research competition is open for students of Armenian origin from the overseas universities as well as non-student researchers.
The goal of the program is to create a community of researchers and bring together people sharing interest in the CBA Research Agenda, who will later be involved in various research initiatives and projects implemented by the Central Bank of Armenia. We also aim at increasing interest towards conducting research among the students and reveal their research potential.
