Bringing new hope for Nepali students, international education giant ‘Australia’s IDP Education’ declared a scholarship program for ‘Nepal’s future citizens’!
The scholarship program worth AUD 50,000 aims at assisting students in getting access to quality overseas education in English-speaking nations from Australia and countries such as UK, Ireland, USA, Canada and New Zealand.
“To create more opportunities for students from Nepal, IDP will be offering international education scholarship to ten ambitious Nepali students. The selection will be merit-based to deserving candidates to help them connect to lifelong career success through an international education degree,” says Andrew Barkla IDP Education CEO.
Additional IDP Educational Plans
Speaking further, Barkla says that IDP also want to co-operate with Nepali NGOs to provide easy education access to the country’s underprivileged youth.
During the IDP media briefing, Piyush Kumar Regional Director IDP South Asia said, “We are delighted with our plan to launch IDP’s first student placement services office in Hattisar, Kathmandu.”
He went on to say that adding highly-trained and experienced counsellors will help students make better education choices with more clarity.

IDP was incepted in 1969 with the name Australian Asian Universities’ Cooperation Scheme (AAUCS) with universities in South-East Asia. It was later renamed as the International Development Program (IDP) of Australian universities, colleges and schools.
On a hopeful note!
We hope that the interests of similar leading education bodies bring out the best from Nepal’s learning masses and also present opportunities to underprivileged youth who have limited opportunities of pursuing an education abroad.
