FOM Scholarship Program

FOM Scholars with US Ambassador Minton
The Friends of Mongolia Scholarship Program was established in the spring of 2006 with the aim of assisting young male students from rural communities with high academic potential and financial need to attend post-secondary institutions across Mongolia. The program specifically stipulated that all applicants be male and living outside of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia's capital city. The reason for this unique requirement was what is referred to as "Mongolia's reverse gender gap." Often rural males are left behind in education because of social and economic demands in the countryside. In fact, according to the National Statistics on Gender in Mongolia, in 2005 only 39% of students enrolled in institutions of higher education were male. Successful applicants were awarded one-year full tuition scholarships.

Since 2006 the program has grown significantly to include several varieties of scholarships that both males and females are eligible to apply for. The program requires approximately $10,000 per year which comes from a combination of funding sources, including Khan Bank, families, RPCV groups, FOM members, and individual donors. More information about the program is available below.

Scholarships for 2011-2012
Friends of Mongolia and the Girvin family awarded twenty Scholarships for the 2011-2012 school year. It was a competitive field, with over forty-two applications. Recipients of the scholarships are pursuing a range of focuses in their studies at university, from Economics to Dentistry. The scholarships go towards covering the tuition fees as well as basic living expenses of students.

Two of the scholarships were made possible by the generous donations of the Croft family. These scholarships went to Vanchinsuren and Lhaasuren, studying Banking Management and International Economic Relations respectively.

“The scholarship is a very big investment for my future,” said Vanchinsuren.

One scholarship was made possible by Zadrozny family. The recipient was T. Elberel, a student studying Social Work.

“My future goals are to successfully complete University, to be recognized by my accomplishments, and to establish ‘Youth Development Center’ in Mongolia,” said Elberel.

Finally, ten scholarship were made possible by the Girvin Scholarship. These scholarships target students pursuing studies in social work, in honor of Matthew Girvin, a UNICEF Programme Officer whose life was cut tragically short in 2001 while on a research assignment in Uvs Aimag. Mr. Girvin’s efforts worked towards creating a better Mongolia and the scholarships will enable the students to do the same.
