Additionally, representatives from eminent schools and government officials from Nepal attended the program, highlighting the collaborative spirit of educational endeavors between the two nations.

The Golden Jubilee Scholarship, established in 2002 to commemorate 50 years of India-Nepal economic cooperation, has seen a fourfold increase in scholarship awardees over the years, now reaching 200 beneficiaries. Under this scheme, students pursuing various disciplines receive financial support, with the current batch representing 76 districts of Nepal, including a notable representation of female and specially-abled students.

Since its inception, the scholarship scheme has benefitted over 3,300 Nepali students across all 77 districts. Moreover, the Indian government’s commitment to educational empowerment is evident through its provision of approximately 1,600 scholarships in various fields, fostering academic collaboration and capacity building between India and Nepal.

India and Nepal’s enduring partnership in education and capacity building is integral to both nations’ socio-economic development. As reiterated by the Ministry of External Affairs, these scholarships and capacity building programs reflect India’s commitment to enhancing Nepal’s human resource development for the collective benefit of the region.
