This technical order said in humor concerned not only students, who had gathered in the great hall of Yerevan State University on the11th of May. The Armenian fund of Help provided with money-grant for the best 100 students from different IHE of Armenia and Kharabakh.

One of the realized charitable programs of The Armenian fund of Help named Educational money-grant is realized by the initiative and sponsorship of YSU graduate Ashot Hayrapetyan. The latter graduated from the faculty of Informatics and Applied Mathematics of YSU in 1996-99 with excellent marks and then went to USA to continue the study. In 1999 Ashot Hayrapetyan took part in one of such competition in San Francisco asserted by one of their organizations and won.

Years past and Ashot Hayrapetyan initiates this kind of competition for our students. We shall hope that todays winners will also undertake such initiation for the youth and students, said the director the Armenian fund of Help of Armenia Bagrat Sargsyan.

He informed that 650 students handed in applications for the competition. They filled in forms, wrote compositions about their profession and future and then participated in the interview. The winners are really very talented students, the average mark is more than 4,5. There are many students, winners of International and Republican Olympiads who have 5-6 scientific articles, said Ashot Hayrapetyan. The program will not end with this much and we foresee to organize periodical meetings with the winner students.

The winners were 45 students from YSU, 15 from ASUE, 15 from Artsakh State University, 12 from SEUA, 4 from Russian-Armenian Slavonic University, 4 from Gavar State University, 3 from Yerevan State Pedagogical University, 1 from the Yerevan State University of Architecture and Construction and 1 student from SEUA from Gavar.

I am very glad... But I am glad not for the money-grant (50 thousand drams), but for the fact that my work is evaluated, my strivings and goals share those people and help me. Except the fact that I am an advanced student I am also a winner of Olympiad, the editor of Young Economist newspaper and a member of Student Council,- said one of the winners from YSU Economics faculty Tigran Abovyan.
