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.
