Kathmandu, August 14
The Delegation of the European Union to Nepal says it has awarded Erasmus Plus scholarships to 52 Nepali students to support them for their master’s degrees. The scholars will spend two years fulltime in various European universities.
The delegation hosted a pre-departure orientation for the students in Kathmandu on Wednesday. Speaking at the function, EU Ambassador to Nepal, Veronica Cordy, said the scholarships would offer a lifetime opportunity to the young Nepali students.
“Apart from improving student’s expertise, the scholarships are also meant to enrich young people’s life experiences, help create mutual understanding and openness between people and cultures,” the delegation quotes her in a statement, “We hope that these scholarships will help these students further excel and that they will return to Nepal with enhanced skills and knowledge useful for the country and themselves.”
The EU says more than 700 Nepali students have benefitted from the EU’s Erasmus+ Scholarship Programme so far.
