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.

[FAR Scholarships]: Nishanian Scholars Graduate Gavar State University.

July 27, 2010

For nearly nine years, the Jerair Nishanian Foundation has implemented the Jerair Nishanian Scholarship Program in Armenia through FAR. This program has given more than 50 socially vulnerable students from Gavar State University in the Gegharkunik region and Yerevan State University of Architecture and Construction the opportunity to continue on to higher education.

This year, 12 of the program’s 53 beneficiaries graduated from Gavar State University. One graduate student and seven undergraduate students earned degrees with honors, also known as “Red Diplomas.” Gavar State University Rector Ruzanna Hakobyan, Der Markos Bishop Hovhannisyan, Gegharkunik Diocese Primate, and other guests attended the ceremony. Ruzanna Hakobyan and Der Markos opened the ceremony with their welcome speeches.

While bittersweet, the atmosphere was also exciting and joyful. The 79 graduate students and 253 undergraduates had to say farewell to their beloved university, yet they were also proud. They are now able to fully contribute to the development of their country with their newly achieved knowledge and skills.

In their speeches, the students thanked first and foremost supporter and friend of GSU Jerair Nishanian, who gave them the opportunity to fulfill their dream and study at the university. Graduates also promised to help students in similar conditions at their first opportunity to do so.
