Tibetan Scholarship Program depends on recipients returning after completion, says TSP Coordinator

Interview with Tenzin Choephel, Coordinator of the Tibetan Scholarship Program at the Tibet Fund, NYC. Choephel says that this year’s eight students are expected to arrive in the U.S in early August. Choephel stresses on the importance of students to return to their communities, after the completion of their studies, in order to ensure continued funding by the U.S government.  Choephel also reveals that TSP has eliminated the provision to take in students for non-degree courses since last year.
