Happy New Year 2022 from the Fulbright Commission!!
We are hopeful for an exciting 2022 filled with vibrant engagement of U.S. Fulbright Students, Researchers and Scholars in Nepal. While we continue to face uncertainties caused by the pandemic, the Commission in Nepal is gearing up to resuming U.S. Students Scholars Programs from January 15, 2022 after a hiatus of 22 months since the pandemic was declared in March, 2020. We are hopeful the U.S. Department of State Travel Advisory for Nepal will remain at Level 3 or lower, for us to continue with our resumption plans and ensure the success of the exchanges. Adherence to Covid-19 health and safety protocols guided by MOHP, WHO and CDC and local, provincial and national guidelines of Nepal, including that of the U.S. Embassy for U.S. citizens, will be part and parcel of safe operation of the U.S. Fulbright Students and Scholars Program in Nepal.
2022 also marks 75 years of U.S. Nepal Relations. The Fulbright Commission will join the U.S. Embassy in celebrating the success of the Fulbright Program, a flagship program for U.S.-Nepal bilateral relations as well.
On November 30th, 2021 the Executive Director of the Fulbright Commission had the honor of attending the 75th Anniversary of the Fulbright Program organized by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, United States Department of State at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC. Additional images are available here. Following the celebrations, the ED participated in the 293rd Quarterly Board Meeting of the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board Meeting, ECA Meeting with Commission Directors and Cooperating Agencies; and best management strategies and best practices sharing sessions on Diversity Programming and Commission Management together with Executive Directors from 28 countries, as well as participating EDs of South and Central Asian countries between December 1-3.
