Scholarship for a Sustainable Future: Lusine D.
Nor Luyce works with young girls, from two local orphanages and/or from poverty stricken families from Gyurmi, Armenia. Under the direction of their Executive Director, Shoghik Mikayelyan, the program provides their mentees with positive role models and emotional support. In addition, Nor Luyce’s program emphasizes the development of educational and career plans. They are now at the stage of either beginning or continuing to help implement each older child’s plan for higher education. Each child has also either completed or is in the process of completing a career plan, which includes the most appropriate type and place of higher education.
Nor Luyce is trying to provide Lusine D., a young girl from Gyumri, with a scholarship that would reduce her out of pocket costs towards her education. Lusine D., her sister, and their elderly parents live in an apartment. They lost their house during the 1988 Spitak Earthquake, and one of their relatives rented them an apartment to live in until they can afford to purchase their own apartment. Lusine D. will graduate high school and will start attending the Gyumri branch of the Polytechnic State University Economics Department in the fall of 2015. Lusine D. is described as a very active, kind-hearted, even-tempered, well-behaved and responsible individual. Her dreams are to become a very good specialist in her field and to be able to buy a house for her family. She also dreams about travelling around the world. Lusine D. is in need of financial assistance in order to start her education at the Polytechnic State University and reach her goals. The requested scholarship funds will help Lusine D. cover the costs of her tuition, books, stationary, clothes and her transportation fee for one year. If Lusine D. is able to do well in her studies, she will be eligible for a scholarship for her continuing studies.
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.
