Giving to Nepal Study Center

The NSC plans to undertake several research and educational initiatives that include data gathering, data analysis, conducting seminars and workshop, travel stipend for student seminar presentations, and publishing electronic journals. We are working very hard to look for external funding both from the private donors as well as from the more traditional funding agencies. But your financial contribution will help institutionalize this research center for the benefit of Nepal and others who are interested on policy questions affecting Nepal and the surrounding regions.

Nepal Study Center (NSC) is registered with the College of Arts and Sciences, University of New Mexico. Your contributions to Nepal Study Center is tax deductible.
