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.
