25 scholarships "The Gipsons", 1,500 BGN per year each

Owing to the generous endowment made by Nelly and Robert Gipson, the USA, the Foundation is setting up a competition for 1,500 BGN annual scholarships for first year students, who have enrolled in any of the universities in Bulgaria and are in financial need.

The scholarship is subject to reconsideration at the end of each semester and renewed upon proof of academic achievement and social needs' record of the family. The financial assistance amounts to 400,000 BGN and is endowed by Nelly and Robert Gipson. The program will be effective for a period of 7 years. Since 2005 the funds on the program, secured by the Gipsons, are transferred to the Foundation with the assistance of the American Foundation for Bulgaria.

Following the example set by the Gipson's, Mr. Joan Abduljalil and his parents set up scholarships for orphans studying in Bulgarian Higher Education Institutions. The contributors donated 8,000 BGN to the Foundation for the education of 2 students over a period of 4 years.
