An agreement has been signed between the Centre for Nepal and Asian Studies (CNAS) and the Free Students Union (FSU) of Tribhuvan University. The MoU, set to take effect from the upcoming academic session of 2080/81, focuses on enhancing scholarship opportunities for students enrolled in the Central Department of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (FoHSS).

Under the terms of the agreement, each department within the FoHSS at Tribhuvan University is mandated to establish one scholarship aimed at assisting students in their research pursuits. Remarkably, a sum of Rs. 25,000 is earmarked to be granted to outstanding students who receive recommendations from their respective departments for their exceptional academic endeavors. This financial support is designated per student within the relevant central department.

Moreover, the Free Students Union will collaborate closely with the Central Department to streamline and facilitate the necessary administrative procedures required for the implementation of the scholarship program.

The agreement is hailed as a significant stride towards fostering academic excellence and research innovation within the realms of humanities and social sciences. It is anticipated to have a profound and lasting impact, benefiting generations of students.

FSU President, Shyam Raj Ojha, with a forward-thinking approach, explained that plans are already underway to expand both the number of supported students and the financial resources allocated for research initiatives. Notably, an initiative has been announced to provide funding for 10 individuals from the university's own resources, signaling a robust commitment to nurturing and empowering research talent.

Furthermore, efforts have been initiated to engage private and government entities in supporting research activities, underscoring a collective dedication to advancing the research agenda and promoting academic excellence.

Shyam Raj Ojha, President of the Free Students Union, shared insights into the collaborative efforts, emphasizing the university's unwavering commitment to becoming a research-centric institution. This partnership underscores the significance of collective action in propelling innovation and knowledge generation within the academic community.
