Background: Ever since His Holiness the Dalai Lama and thousands of Tibetans were forced into exile to India and neighboring countries in the aftermath of occupation of Tibet by communist China in 1959, the Tibetan exile community under the leadership of His Holiness the Dalai Lama has accorded the highest priority in providing education to the Tibetan children. Beginning with the first Tibetan school at Mussoorie, India in 1960 with fifty students, over the years more than seventy seven residential and day schools have been established in India, Nepal and Bhutan with support of the host governments and international support.Besides, providing adequate school education facilities, the community has been making concerted efforts to provide as many scholarships as possible for pursuing further studies in various disciples in India and abroad. It is also recognized that many individual parents have taken strong responsibility to provide best of education to their children wherever they are residing. As a result of the collective efforts at the community and individual levels, tremendous progress has been made in the field of education in the last five decades and many persons have been able to achieve high degree of excellence and specialization in diverse fields of professions and learning.Objective: However, currently the CTA and Tibetan community do not have any comprehensive database of all persons who have completed education and training in different specialized fields. It is now opportune time to maintain such a database to assess human resource capital of the Tibetan exile community primarily for networking and also for planning in utilizing this vast pool of talented and skilled manpower for its development. His Holiness has also spoken time and again need for such a database and enhanced networking among ourselves.Keeping the above objective in mind, the Department of Education is conducting a worldwide survey to assess human resource capital in the Tibetan community. This survey is targeted to all those who have already obtained Doctor of Philosophy (PhD); Master of Philosophy (M.Phil); Master or equivalent in any field of study; degree in western and traditional medicines, Engineering, Agriculture Sciences, Pedagogy; Accountancy, Commerce or in any other specialized fields of learning.Therefore, we request all Tibetans residing and working in any part of the world, who have already obtained qualifications in any of the above stated fields notwithstanding when that have been acquired to kindly fill up the attached survey form online and send it to us through concerned settlement office/offices of Tibet/ local Tibetan Associations which ever is relevant or directly to the Department either by mail or email(firstname.lastname@example.org) before 30th of April 2009.
