[Vanadzor Old Age Home]: A bright day at VOAH.

April 17, 2010

As tradition has it, FAR’s Mathevosian scholars pay a visit to the Vanadzor Old Age Home (VOAH) at least once a year. The latest visit was pretty remarkable. More than 40 students dropped by to see the residents this week. In addition to spending time with them and exchanging stories, the students took part in a cohesive effort to brighten up the grounds. They cleaned, painted, tidied up the yard, and planted trees and rose bushes. Students from Yerevan Conservatory — recipients of FAR’s Sayan scholarships — topped the day off with a beautiful concert enjoyed by all.

[FAR Scholarships]: First Mathevosian Scholar Graduates Medical School.

March 29, 2010

Newly vested surgeon and Mathevosian Scholar Eduard Bayramyan recently became the very first student to graduate medical school with this help of this FAR program. Through the Mathevosian Scholarship, FAR sponsors medical residents who study at Yerevan State Medical University (YSMU). Once they’re through medical school, these new doctors are required to practice medicine in regions outside of Armenia and Russia, which lack adequate medical care.

Eduard is heading to the underserved Tavush region to fulfill his first assignment at Dilijan Hospital.

His graduation was marked by notable guests, including Tavush Governor Armen Ghularyan, Head of the Regional Health Department Karine Dovlatbekyan, YSMU Director Gevorg Yaghjyan, FAR Deputy Director Margarit Piliposyan, and FAR Program Coordinators Dr. Hambardzum Simonyan and Eduard Karapetyan.

[Beneficiary portrait]: Anna Snkhchyan

December 16, 2009

Since childhood, Anna Snkhchyan has exhibited extraordinary academic abilities.  Before attending school, she had mastered the alphabet.  As Anna grew up, her mother noticed her love of mathematics, and suggested that that she apply to the Department of Economics at Yerevan State University.

Despite receiving high grades on the entrance exams, in 2006 Anna was admitted to the paid educational system of the university.  FAR’s Mathevosian Scholarship Program played a decisive role in her fate.  Her stipend from this scholarship allowed her to attend university and really focus on her studies.  Thanks to FAR’s support, Anna fully devoted herself to her education, and received only “excellent” grades for three years.

As a result of her academic success, Anna was transferred to the free educational system and has also been receiving FAR’s financial assistance for three years.  The young girl spends the awarded money to cover daily expenses. Her mother, who raised Anna alone, is 63 years old and lives on government support.

Anna think of herself as lucky, since she has previously applied to other FAR scholarship programs and has been selected as a recipient twice before.  At FAR, we are very proud to be a link in the chain of a successful student.  Like those of us at FAR, Anna believes in her future, as well as the future of Armenia.  After her graduation, Anna intends to continue her education to obtain master degree.
