Indian university gives Zambia 150 scholarshipsBy Sipilisiwe Ncube on 12 Jun 2017
One of India’s leading private Universities, Shimla, has given Zambia 150 scholarships.
According to a statement issued by Zambia’s first secretary for press and public relations to India Bangwe Naviley, Shimla University Director Admissions Dr Ajit Nedungadi said 50 are 100 percent scholarships while 100 are 50 percent.
Dr Nedungadi said the scholarships were specifically for tuition fees while students would cater for their own air tickets, accommodation and state government administrative costs, all estimated at $1500 per year.
He said the scholarships were in the fields of engineering, management, fashion design, hospitality, law, journalism, architecture, and applied sciences.
Dr Nedungadi announced this when he called on Zambia’s High Commissioner to India Judith Kapijimpanga at her residence in New Delhi, India.
And Ambassaodr Kapijimpanga hailed the Indian government and Shimla University for providing a conducive environment to support Zambian students.
She said the Zambian Mission in New Delhi would consult with the Ministry of Higher Education in Lusaka to ensure that the most vulnerable students benefited from the scholarships.
