    IGEFA has sponsored the Summer Camp at the TUMO Center for Creative Technologies since 2014



Thanks to the generosity of our scholarship donors, this
year IGEFA has awarded 31 scholarships to Armenian students at various universities across the country.
A special thanks to AHABA for supporting six students at the Yerevan State Medical University.

Congratulations! We wish you good luck and success with your education now and in the future! Let all your dreams come true!

IGEFA provided Scholarships and Tuition Assistance to students perusing higher education and enrolled in “tuition paying” tracks in various Armenian universities, who have demonstrated good academic performance but have faced financial hardship and difficulties in paying their tuition. Through the years we have supported more than Armenian 40 students studying at various higher education institutions: American University of Armenia (AUA), EREA (European Regional Educational Academy), UFAR (Foundation Université Franç Lusineaise en Arménie), Yerevan State University, Armenian State Medical University, University of Foreign Languages, Russian-Armenian (Slavonic) University, Armenian State Conservatory of Music, Armenian Academy of Fine Arts.

The award ceremony will take place on September 17, at 2 p.m., at the
Armenian Artists’ Union Hall (Հայաստանի Նկարիչների Միության Դահլիճ) Abovyan St 16, Yerevan
