Scholarship for a Sustainable Future: Seda M.
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 Seda M., a young girl from Gyumri, with a scholarship that would reduce her out of pocket costs towards her education. Seda M., her brother, and their parents, live in a rental apartment in the city. Seda’s aunt, who has health issues, also lives with them and is cared for by her family. Currently, Seda M. is in her second year at the medical college. She is part of the Department of Pharmacology and aspires to become a pharmacist. This past summer she spent her time volunteering at local pharmacies. She is described an active, wise, goal-oriented, intelligent and responsible individual. Seda M. has a great sense of humor and is a natural born leader who is able to help support others. Seda M. is in need of financial assistance in order to continue her education at the medical college and reach her goals. The requested scholarship funds will help Seda M. cover the costs of her tuition, books, stationary, and her transportation fee for one year.
