Days ago, FAR’s staff evaluated the progress of the 60 current Mathevosian scholars. We’re pleased to say that the majority of these students have maintained excellent grades.

This year many of the scholars have also participated in a number of community service efforts, including paying visits to places like Yerevan’s Zatik Orphanage and Vanadzor Old Age Home, where they spent time playing with the children and talking with elderly residents. Two of the scholars even volunteered at the Children of Armenia Sponsorship Program summer camp as assistant counselors over the summer. Four of the students are also taking English classes.

For 13 years, FAR’s Mathevosian Scholarship Program has provided much-needed assistance to students from extremely poor families, more than half of whom have grown up in households with only one parent or with disabled parents. More than 136 students have received sponsorship since the program began. Armenian-American benefactor Anoosh Mathevosian founded this scholarship, which covers tuition for all four years of college.
