[FAR Scholarships]: Jerair Nishanian Scholars Continue to be Supported.

September 23, 2010

Fifty-three young Armenian scholars are able to continue their education through the Jerair Nishanian Foundation Scholarship program. FAR’s Educational Programs council recently evaluated the academic performance of these students, who are all in their second and fourth year of university.

Also, FAR received about 32 applications from first-year students from Gavar University who wish to have their studies funded. Staff is now making home visits to interview the applicants and their families and further assess their financial needs.

Through the Jerar Nishanian Scholarship Program students at Gavar State University, Yerevan State Engineering University, and Yerevan State University of Architecture and Construction receive tuition coverage and monthly stipends to cover basic living costs, including transportation and school materials.

For the last few years, the Jerair Nishanian Foundation has provided a few lucky students with the gift of an education.  Each year, through FAR, the foundation sponsors approximately fifty students who are working towards their degrees at Gavar State University.  Recently, FAR’s Edward Karapetyan and Levon Lachikyan visited Gavar to meet with some of the program’s beneficiaries.

The scholarship recipients, all of whom maintain stellar academic records, gave the FAR staff thank-you notes addressed to the benefactor, in an effort to show their gratitude to Mr. Nishanian.  As a Christmas gift, Mr. Nishanian mandated that his foundation provide each current scholarship recipient 10,000 Armenian Dram as Christmas present. FAR is very proud to have Mr. Nishanian as a benefactor, and we thank him for his continued support.
