Dear Friends,

Tharus and Friends Association (TFA) is pleased to announce the names of the students who have been selected for the scholarship for 2019-2020 school year.  This scholarship is awarded each year to intelligent and financially needy students studying at high school and undergraduate (bachelor and lower) levels of any discipline in Nepal.  This year, TFA awards a total of NRs 304,800 to eleven (11) students.  Of them, eight (8) are selected for “General Scholarship” and three (3) of them are for “Named Scholarship”.  Named Scholarships and their sponsors are as follows: Two Saroj Choudhary Scholarships by Mr. Trib Choudhary – one for former Kamaiya student and one for disable student; and Basanti Devi Chaudhary Scholarship by Dr. Ganesh Chaudhary for former Kamaiya student.  The general scholarship is awarded by TFA based on the fund collected from members and various donors around the world.

There were 55 applicants from 15 districts this year.  TFA ranked all the applicants by applying the evaluation criteria uniformly.  The successful applicants for the general scholarship were selected based on the ranking.  The applicants for the named scholarships were selected based on the ranking and specific requirements set by the sponsors.

TFA sincerely thanks all its sponsors and donors who have not only made it possible to continue this program year after year, but also to increase the number of recipients and scholarship amounts over the years since its establishment in 2008.  With the students selected this year, TFA has supported 101 Tharu students with scholarships since 2008.  This is a great milestone and TFA prides itself.  Donations come from members and friends living in many countries including USA, Canada, Singapore, and Australia.  Once again, TFA expresses gratitude to all the supporters and well-wishers.

Congratulations to the selected students.  TFA will send information in near future about when, where, and how to receive the scholarship award money.  Please stay tuned for that.
