Scholarship Program

FAR’s scholarship programs and the Gulamerian Vocational Training Program give young Armenians the potential to contribute greatly to the growth and development of their country through opportunities made possible by education. For many, these scholarships are the key to realizing their dreams and bettering their lives, as many come from poverty and families who struggle. 


During the 2018-2019 academic year, FAR’s 12 scholarships supported a total of 500 students in their pursuit of either a higher education or vocational studies. Sixty percent of FAR-supported 2018 university graduates found jobs upon finishing their studies.

“I am very proud and happy to learn about the successes of Nishanian scholars, and I am sure they are the future of Armenia and it will be built thanks to our youth’s patriotic work and diligence. Young people with higher education and modern knowledge will have a better chance to improve the quality of life and to create a country where to be and live, work and create, is a great happiness.”
