CTA takes over the US Scholarship Program

Yuthok Karma Gelek, Secretary, Education Department of the CTA explains that the new Kashag and Kalon Tripa have decided to take over the management of the Fullbright scholarship program and announced a revised selection criteria.

Two alumni of the program express their opinions on the changes to the program, its management, and how the system might be improved. Secretary Yuthok stated that the issue of scholarship recipients who break their prior agreement with the CTA to return and serve communities in India for a minimum number of years cannot be resolved through legal means. He said that ultimately, the question of whether a person honors his or her scholarship obligations is a matter of character and motivation of the individual student.
