WASHINGTON, DC: Students of the Tibetan Scholarship Program visited the Office of Tibet, Washington, DC on 10 January. The group was led by officials of the US Foreign Affairs Department and Tibet Fund.
Representative Ngodup Tsering received the student delegation and introduced them to workings of the Office, including its current and future undertakings. He also guided them through an office tour and introduced the staff as well.
The students had frank discussion with the Representative on the Office’s dealings with local Tibetan community, Chinese intellectuals, students and individuals.
The TSP was established in 1987 through legislation to educate future Tibetan leaders. Since then, approximately 444 Tibetans have attended US universities under its auspices.
