As the current academic year nears its closing and the higher educational institutions (HEIs) examination period starts, a joint meeting was held at the RA Science and Education Ministry’s HEIs Department on April 16.They visited the Gavar Orphanage on April 20 in order to inform the orphanage graduates about Gulamerian Scholarship Program.
Along with the three graduates of the orphanage, future graduates participated in the meeting as well.They followed with great interest the speech of Educational/Scientific programs coordinator Eduard Karapetyan. In his speech, Mr. Karapetyan not only mentioned the new criteria defined by the FAR Educational Committee, but also discussed the issues related to the current labor market and its development tendencies.
The meeting was very important and useful, especially for the children’s professional orientation. Today, most of the youth in Armenia tend to become lawyers or economists. FAR representatives helped the meeting’s participants benefit from FAR’s financial support more effectively and choose different (vocational) professions with prospective careers.
At the same time, they were informed that according to the established regulation/norm, in consideration of the applications, priority will be given to the applicants admitted to the state HEIs, colleges and vocational schools.
