YEREVAN. – Annual funding of the program provided to young scholars
will be doubled and increased to AMD 200 million, President Serzh
Sargsyan said.

Armenian leader on Thursday met with young scientists in the National Library.

Chairman of the council of young scientists Gevorg Vardanyan presented
an annual report on the program which commenced last June. He called
the program `very effective’, thus making the president ask about
`concrete results.’

`I am not so naive to believe that 100 million is enough for tangible
result,’ he said, adding that he would not like to hear opinions only
on effectiveness of the program.

Summing up the meeting, President Sargsyan promised to allocate 200
million for the next year.
