VivaCell-MTS continues the Education Fund project for the 1st and 2nd year students who are in special needs, orphans and who live in dire economic conditions, the press service of VivaCell-MTS reports. Since 2010 the company has been covering the tuition fees of 200 students from the higher institutions of Yerevan and the regions. This year VivaCell-MTS has added 100 more students.
This unique scholarship aims at providing these students with a supported access to university education by covering their educational fees during the whole period of their study. It will help boost their educational attainment and improve their social and psychological conditions.
"This project is being implemented as a part of our efforts to help our country eradicate poverty by giving our upcoming generations the opportunity to gain professional knowledge and skills. Covering tuition fees is a culture we instill in Armenia. We are sure we will be proud of most of these students because of their achievements, and this is the one of the most significant investments in the development of the country," said VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian.
